10-State Project to Study Methods to Reduce Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections in Hospital ICUs
Date:2/19/2009

lement monthly team meetings to assess progress.

This project is funded through AHRQ's Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks initiative, an implementation model of field-based research designed to promote innovation in health care delivery by accelerating the diffusion of research into practice. For more information on AHRQ's patient safety research, visit http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/errorsix.htm.

A number of additional states have expressed interest in being part of a large-scale initiative to reduce blood stream infections, and the Johns Hopkins Quality and Safety Research Group has received private funding to work with additional state hospital associations and their patient safety partners.

In January, HHS released its first departmental action plan for preventing health care-associated infections. This comprehensive plan establishes national goals and outlines key actions for enhancing and coordinating HHS-supported efforts. These include development of national benchmarks, prioritized recommended clinical practices, a coordinated research agenda, an integrated information systems strategy, and a national messaging plan. This 10-state project supports the actions outlined in the plan and fosters a safer, more affordable health care system through rapid translation of research into practice.
