Objective: To analyze, through literature, the main preventive measures recommended to reduce rates of bladder catheter-associated urinary tract infection. Method: It is an integrative literature review, which has as sample cohort, case-control and clinical trial studies, randomized or not, published in Portuguese, English or Spanish, in the period between 2009 and 2018. The collect and data analysis occurred in April and May 2019. Results: The publications emerged from studies performed in intensive and non-intensive care units, in different countries. Among the preventive measures, hand hygiene and shorter usage time of bladder catheter were highlighted. Conclusion: The present review allowed different national and international data to be analyzed, they corroborate preventive strategies adopted in the Brazilian context; however, the limitations of this study are in highlighting in literature only two preventive measures.
