At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize evidence-based, appropriate indications for the use of indwelling urinary catheters
- Describe proper care of indwelling urinary catheters, including insertion and maintenance
- Identify why and how to prioritize indwelling urinary catheter removal for reason pf preventing unintended consequence (CAUTIs and other healthcare-associated conditions) and avoiding inappropriate testing and antimicrobial use
