PIPS compiled a series of tools to assess the effectiveness of hospital strategies to combat blood stream infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia. This Web-based toolkit focuses on two interventions to improve critical care—reduction of catheter-related bloodstream infections and ventilator-associated pneumonia. The toolkit includes: Education, Inventories (surveys), Paper checklists, Statistical process control, Surveillance guides and Quality improvement. The toolkit is available as several Word documents, PowerPoint documents, and PDFs, requiring Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Adobe Reader.
