Infection preventionists are being asked to identify ways to help address some their organizations’ most pressing challenges, such as reducing costs, improving quality, and enhancing patient experiences.

This overview summarizes the Take Aim Program, which designed to support health care providers implement evidence-based practices that address known risks for surgical site infections (SSIs) and bloodstream infections (BSIs) through the appropriate utilization of Ethicon devices.

Infection preventionists can use this summary to learn about a program that will help them conduct risk assessments of device usage to identify gaps in current practices or policies, enhance staff awareness of evidence-based strategies to address infection risks, and enable patients to become more engaged in their care from pre-admission to discharge.
