NJHIIN Using A Targeted Approach to Prevent Healthcare - Associated Infections Workshop

March 12, 2019

Agenda - Click Here

The Targeted Assessment for Prevention (TAP) Strategy is a framework for quality improvement, developed by the Centers for Diseas Control and Prevention using data for action to prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). The TAP Strategy consists of three components:

  1. Running TAP Repots in the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) to target healthcare facilities and specific units with an excess burden of HAIs.
  2. Administering TAP Facility Assessment Tools to identify gaps in infection prevention in the targeted locations.
  3. Accessing infection prevention resources within the TAP Implementation Guides to address those gaps.

This full-day workshop will provide education and coaching on how the TAP Strategy can be used to enhance infection prevention efforts within acute care and long-term acute care hospitals
