Firm-based trial to improve central venous catheter insertion practices

Health Knowledge, Attitudes, Practice
Internship and Residency
Our intervention improved residents' knowledge of complications and use of masks during catheter insertion; however, it did not significantly change venous insertion sites. Catheter insertions on our general medicine wards are infrequent, and the skills acquired during the skills-building session may have deteriorated given the few clinical opportunities for reinforcement.
