AbstractCatheter-related infection (CRI) surveillance is advocated as a healthcare quality indicator. However, there is no national CRI surveillance programme or standardized CRI definitions in Irish intensive care units (ICUs).
SponsorsFunding was received from the Intensive Care Society of Ireland, the Critical Care Programme of the Health Service Executive, and an unrestricted grant from Merck Sharpe & Dohme. The study was endorsed by the Irish Critical Care Trials Group
