Especially staff that have been in the field for many years. Habits are developed and challenging to change. To implement change that is beneficial for our patients, we must strategize and work together. Two simple ways to overcome these barriers for change is education and staff support. Provide education about appropriate techniques and constantly refresh this information so that it will be strictly adhered to. Another strategy is to provide interactive demonstrations on appropriate use of techniques, appropriate follow up catheter care, and also education about appropriate catheter criterion so that catheters are not placed for convenience use. Constant monitoring for adherence to guidelines and policies is a way to measure the outcome of the recommendation. Another indicator that guidelines are being followed is to observe staff techniques during placement of a urinary catheter to ensure that appropriate techniques are being utilized. Probably the most accurate way to measure if the recommended interventions are being appropriately utilized would be to keep track of hospital reported nosocomial infection rates, specifically CAUTI rates. A comparison of data before and after implementation will be the strongest indicator that the change is impactful. C361 Task 2
