Infections among patients receiving hemodialysis continue to be major causes of morbidity and mortality despite recent advances in the science of infection prevention. Many infections are potentially preventable if caregivers adhere to proven best practices. Yet research suggests that many evidence-based interventions are not uniformly practiced in dialysis settings. This webinar will review the challenge of infection for dialysis patients and discuss proven best practices to prevent infections in dialysis facilities. We will demonstrate how engaged staff, partnering with an infection preventionist, can deliver high quality care according to industry best practice in the complex hemodialysis setting, help ensure regulatory adherence and promote optimal patient safety. Specifically, this webinar will provide attendees with tools and resources to help improve infection prevention practices of dialysis staff, including an overview of the CDC Core Elements to reduce BSI in dialysis patients, and available tools such as checklists and audit forms which can be used to assess current practice and inform quality improvement.Learning Objectives:Understand the mortality and morbidity of infections for hemodialysis patientsDescribe the evidence-based policies and procedures that reduce infections in hemodialysis patientsDescribe an algorithm of blood sampling on hemodialysis to minimize contaminationUnderstand an algorithm of hepatitis C screening for hemodialysis patientsDescribe how the hemodialysis program can impact the organization’s healthcare-associated infection ratesIdentify interventions that the infection preventionist can implement to reduce the risk of infection
