CATHETER-ASSOCIATED URINARY TRACT INFECTION (CAUTI) is a preventable complication. Many guidelines developed to prevent CAUTI are directly under nurses' control. How knowledgeable are nurses about best practices for eliminating CAUTI, and how well do healthcare facilities support these best practices? Help us gather information about current nursing knowledge and practice by responding to this survey. We'll publish an analysis of results, including references, in a future issue of Nursing2010.
