Resumo An intervention study was undertaken to evaluate the impact of an education program on the incidence of central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) in 2 intensive care units. There was a nonsignificant reduction in the incidence of CLABSI (odds ratio, 0.46 [95% confidence interval, 0.21-1.02]; P = .04) despite a significant increase in knowledge of CLABSI prevention by the staff of both intensive care units after the education program.
