This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The primary aim is to find which interventions (other than anticoagulants, systemic antibiotics and antibiotic lock techniques) are effective in preventing central venous catheter (CVC) related infections in children with cancer.
Further objectives are to examine the effectiveness of each intervention (for details see the section 'Types of interventions') across the following subgroups:
- those with implanted versus external catheters;
- those with haematological versus non-haematological malignancies; and
- those children with cancer who have undergone haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) versus those who have not.
