decrease in both types of infections. A weakness of the study is that there was only a slight decrease in the infection rates. A strength is that it compared the rates for a 12 months.Article 6: This article was a systematic review on 13 different articles, which most were quantitative studies. According to Andrade & Fernandes (2015), “The structure of this systematic review on literature was based on the CAUTI thematic, elaborating the initial question, defining eligibility criteria, selecting article samples and further analysis and results discussion.” Results showed that an indwelling catheter should be removed as soon as it is not necessary any longer to reduce CAUTI rates.

A weakness is that the studies were conducted as early as 2007.References
