Tool Helps Hospitals Target Infection Prevention Efforts

A new four-part tool is available to help hospitals and health systems estimate the cost and benefit of interventions to prevent health care-associated infections. The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology collaborated with the American Hospital Association (AHA) to develop the tool with funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). For more on preventing health care-associated infections, see AHA’s suite of free online training resources.

In April, AHRQ plans to release a customizable toolkit to help prevent central-line associated bloodstream infections and catheter-associated urinary tract infections in intensive care units. AHA will work with AHRQ to share all new resources with the field.
