According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is defined as recovery of the pathogen from blood culture in the patient who had the central line at the time of infection or within 48 h. The objectives of the study were to evaluate the level of knowledge regarding the prevention of CLABSI among staff nurses, to assess the effectiveness of the educative intervention on knowledge regarding the prevention of central line-associated bloodstream infection among staff nurses and to associate the level of knowledge with selected demographic variables of staff nurses. A pre-test–post-test one-group design was adopted by the researcher, and 60 staff nurses working in the intensive care and haemodialysis units in selected hospitals in Kanpur were selected using a purposive sampling technique. A structured knowledge questionnaire was used to collect data. The result of the study showed that the post-test mean score (17) was high compared to the pre-test mean score (11) of knowledge. There is a statistically significant difference between pre-test and post-test knowledge. The Chi-square test revealed that there was no significant association of knowledge with selected demographic variables such as age, gender, educational status or exposure to previous class on CLABSI. The overall findings of the study clearly showed that there is a need for continuous educational intervention to enhance the knowledge level of nursing staff.
