SUNA Supported ANA Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection Prevention Tool

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are the most commonly reported hospital-acquired condition. RNs can play a major role in reducing CAUTI rates. The American Nurses Association (ANA) has developed an innovative, streamlined, evidenced-based clinical tool to aid in reducing CAUTIs. Using a consensus process, ANA assembled a technical expert panel (TEP) of nursing clinical experts to develop and disseminate an evidence-based CAUTI reduction tool for nurses with support by the Partnership for Patients. TEP members included ANA members, representatives from its specialty nursing organizational affiliates, infection control specialists, and patient safety authorities. Diane K. Newman, DNP, FAAN, BCB-PMD, represented SUNA on this panel.

Consensus Statement on Advanced Practice Providers

Recognizing that nurse practitioners and physician assistants play a key role in team-based delivery of care, the American Urological Association has developed a Consensus Statement on Advanced Practice Providers. The Consensus Statement examines advanced practice provider integration from a regulatory and practice management approach. The Consensus Statement was developed by a workgroup featuring a diverse set of urologic providers, including physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Susanne Quallich, ANP-BC, NP-C CUNP, FAANP, represented SUNA on the workgroup.
