• Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) surveillanceA catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) surveillance programme requires active, patient-based, prospective surveillance of CVC-associated infections and their corresponding denominator data.
  • 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.
