Implementation Guide: Surveillance of Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care recently revised their Implementation Guide for Surveillance of Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI) in Australian public and private hospitals found at: https://www.safetyandquality.gov.au/our-work/healthcare-associated-infections/hai-surveillance/surveillance-central-line-associated-bloodstream-infection

There are some aspects of this guide that differ from the VICNISS CLABSI module.  Where there is variation VICNISS users must always follow the VICNISS CLABSI module available on the VICNISS website: click here
