What is it about?

Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI) is the commonly occurring infection related to central venous catheters in patients. It not only increases the hospital stay and mortality risk but also adds to the financial burden. One of the common factor causing CLABSI is through Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) which is mostly administered via the central line. This study mainly focuses on testing the knowledge level of critical care nurses about CLABSI related to TPN administration and also evaluating their practical skills to prevent this infection, followed by providing them necessary education to upgrade their knowledge and competency.

Why is it important?

This study will be helpful for the readers and other researcher to provide them an insight regarding the importance of educational programme for the critical care nurses in order to improve their knowledge and practice regarding appropriate TPN administration so as to reduce the incidence of CLABSI, which is not only important for the healthcare but also for the professional growth of the nurses.


I have put a lot of thought and efforts into carrying out this research. It was a pleasure working on this study. This topic is surely one of its kind and uses the upgraded interventional tool like skill-competency programme involving OSCE method and various checklists. I hope you find this article helpful and insightful.
