Implementing antibiotic stewardship programs in post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) settings is a major priority. This can be a daunting challenge, since many health care providers are uncertain where to start. This toolkit is designed to help PALTC facilities implement an antibiotic stewardship program centered on improving the management of urinary tract infections (UTI). In particular, the toolkit focuses on a specific type of UTI—uncomplicated bladder infections or cystitis.
This toolkit is designed to help facilities educate nursing home staff, prescribing clinicians, and residents/families about the diagnosis and treatment of uncomplicated cystitis—as well as to effect systems change and promote quality assessment/performance improvement (QAPI) efforts. It makes the tools piloted as part of the IOU Study available for further dissemination.
