Introduction: Bloodstream infections (BSIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in a healthcare facility. It is essential to follow standardised, evidence-based policies and protocols so as to prevent BSIs associated with indwelling intravascular medical devices. To address this issue, the Hospital Infection Society-India (HISI) took up the initiative to build up consensus on 'Infection Prevention aspects of Indwelling Intravascular Medical Devices'. The HISI is an association of medical professionals with a special interest in the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial stewardship. It is registered with the Registrar of Societies at Delhi. Founded in 1991, the Society presently has >1000 members. A HISI Educational and Awareness Initiative 'Vichar Goshthi' and Consensus Building were organised under the aegis of HISI Delhi NCR Chapter Meet on Saturday 7th July 2018 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Auditorium, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi.
