Nearly 2 million Americans develop a healthcare-related infection each year, and about 100,000 of them die because of it. Yet, these infections could reasonably be prevented by adopting and implementing evidence-based interventions aimed at improving the quality of infection-preventing activities. However, too many hospital staff members still oppose to these initiatives. There is a technical know-how for preventing infections, but the human problem of adapting it is often left untreated, and remains therefore unsolved. This book was designed to solve this problem. Using flowing style and a simple language, the book leads its readers through a step-by-step description of how a quality improvement intervention could take place in an ideal hospital, identifying possible obstacles and offering practical strategies to overcome them. This text makes use of the authors' vast clinical experience, and enriches it with examples, anecdotes and simple practical indications.
