to assess the patient’s readiness for discharge, which includes adequate education regarding indwelling catheter care. By advocating for the class, they will be supporting the policy change. Our unit nurse manager is also a stakeholder because they have the power to implement a policy that enforces a practice change. Finally, hospital officials are also stakeholders because they are financially affected by the costly burden of CAUTI and would support a system wide policy change if significant improvement in patient outcomes are seen.

Although there were limitations to the 4 primarily selected studies, the article suggests that CAUTI costs U.S. hospitals an estimated $1.7 billion per year (Hollenbeak & Schilling, 2018). In the article, “ The power of education: preoperative class reduces anxiety and improves confidence”, the authors provide insight on how preoperative education advanced outcomes for prostatectomy patients on a surgical unit.
