AHRQ has released a new evidence-based toolkit that can help senior living communities reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and other health care-associated infections (HAIs). According to AHRQ, the toolkit provides resources to enhance leadership and staff engagement, teamwork, and safety culture, to facilitate reliable use of evidence-based practices. The toolkit includes instructional materials and resources in infection prevention best practices (e.g., foundational infection prevention strategies, CAUTI prevention, antibiotic stewardship), resident and family engagement, quality improvement, and sustainability to guide your facility through implementing an improvement project to reduce HAIs.
