Life-saving medical treatments are delivered into the bloodstream via intravenous (IV) catheters. This risks bacteria also entering the bloodstream through the catheter and causing a deadly whole-body infection. My research will use an advanced clinical trial design to test new medical equipment and decision support tools to block bacteria entering catheters and avoid infections during IV therapy. This will make patients safer and improve hospital care in developed and developing countries.
