Article:

 Cost savings from reduced catheter-related bloodstream infection after simulation-based education for residents in a medical intensive care unit.

Publication:

 Simulation in Healthcare, 5(2), 98-102.

Annotation:

 

These authors provide an example of Kirkpatrick’s (1994) Level 4 evaluation using cost effectiveness as a measure of success. They demonstrated a reduction of catheter-related bloodstream infections after the implementation of a simulation-based central venous catheter insertion training program. Findings indicate a 7:1 return on investment for the program.
