New AHRQ Toolkit Helps Keep Dialysis Patients Safer
To help prevent infection in people with end-stage renal disease, AHRQ has developed a new resource, the AHRQ Safety Program for End-Stage Renal Disease Facilities Toolkit. Dialysis clinics can use this toolkit to prevent healthcare-associated infections in their patients. The toolkit helps clinicians and other health care workers follow clinical best practices, create a culture of safety, use checklists and other audit tools and engage patients and their families in infection prevention practices. This new resource has science-based, practical information—including educational videos—that reflects the experiences of the frontline providers who helped develop the toolkit.
