Numerous reports from the World Health Organisation and other organizations have clearly identified the increasing endemic burden of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial resistant infections. Key among the most preventable of these are infections that are associated with vascular catheters (VCs), in particular those leading to bloodstream infections (BSI) and sepsis. This project aims to systematically appraise the evidence on the topic of prevention of BSI and other infections associated with PIVCs.
