AHRQ Safety Program for Improving Antibiotic Use.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
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 long-term care facilities to participate are currently being accepted.
