Enhanced Bacteraemia Surveillance

Data from the enhanced EARS-Net system can identify changes in the association of infection over time (e.g., community or healthcare-associated), identify potentially preventable sources of bloodstream infection (e.g., IV lines and urinary catheters) and enable this information to help track the progress of improvement programmes. The ultimate aim is to improve overall patient safety. This page has links to the protocol, the data entry tool and reports.
