AHRQ Safety Program for Improving Antibiotic Use.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; AHRQ; Johns Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality; NORC at The University of Chicago.

Improving antibiotic use is a strategy to reduce dangerous health care–associated infections. This website provides information associated with a large-scale improvement initiative. This project will use the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program improvement strategy to develop and test a bundle of interventions in the ambulatory care, long-term care, and acute care environments. Applications for pediatric and adult ambulatory clinics to participate in the program launching in December 2019 are currently being accepted.
