Hematology/Oncology Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections Collaborative

This multi-year Association effort is focused on reducing central line associated blood stream infections (CLABSI) in the pediatric hematology/oncology (Hem/Onc) unit. Participants in this initiative learn how to reliably implement "best practice" bundles to reduce CLABSI, collect monthly data, and attend two workshops each year while receiving transparent performance feedback data and coaching. Teams also discover new knowledge and test new interventions systematically and quickly through the collaborative's large sample sizes and methodological rigor. Read the Collaborative Charter to learn more.

Since October 2009, the Hematology/Oncology CLABSI Collaborative has:

  • Saved 51 lives
  • Prevented 433 infections
  • Saved over $15,132,898

*Data updated quarterly. Current data reflects Q2 2013.
