Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections Risk Prevention

The Methods of Evaluating the Effectiveness of Change

Evaluation is a very fundamental component of change management because it measures the performance of the new system or process (Acheterberg, Schoonhoven, & Grol, 2008). The implementation plan proposed three evidence-based solutions to prevent and reduce the risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). The first recommendation included the introduction of checklists to enhance the effectiveness of supervision. The second strategy emphasized adherence to hand hygiene programs. The final intervention entailed the prevention of unnecessary catheterization by managing the insertion, use, and preservation of the catheters. The nursing home should employ the following techniques to assess the effectiveness of these strategies.
