AHRQ’s Safety Program for Nursing Homes:
On-Time Prevention

 

On-Time Pressure Ulcer Prevention is designed for nursing homes with electronic medical records. It includes weekly reports to help nursing home clinical staff easily identify residents with increasing risk of pressure ulcer formation and understand their changing clinical picture, so that they can make timely changes in care plans to help prevent pressure ulcers. On-Time is designed to be implemented by a multidisciplinary care team with the help of a trained facilitator who teaches the content of the reports and helps staff integrate the reports into day-to-day practice.  AHRQ will provide more detailed information on training opportunities when it is available.  To find out more about On-Time Pressure Ulcer Prevention, go to http://www.ahrq.gov/professionals/systems/long-term-care/resources/ontime/index.html

CDC Continues to Recommend a Flu Vaccine as the Best Way to Protect Against the Flu

 

On December 3, 2014 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Health Advisory announcing that H3N2 viruses are predominant so far this season, some of which are different from the vaccine virus and reminding clinicians about CDC’s vaccine and treatment recommendations. The information about which viruses are circulating this season is noteworthy for two reasons. 1.) Seasons during which influenza A H3N2 viruses predominate are sometimes associated with more hospitalizations and deaths than during H1N1 or influenza B-predominant seasons; and, 2.) The vaccine may not work as well against the H3N2 viruses that are different from what is in the vaccine. 
Influenza viruses are constantly changing – they can change from one season to the next or they can even change within the course of the same season. While vaccine effectiveness against drifted H3N2 viruses may be reduced this season, influenza vaccination still offers the best protection we have against seasonal flu. 
Even when drifted viruses are circulating, CDC continues to recommend influenza vaccination for people age 6 months and older. Read more.

BREAKING NEWS FROM THE WHITEHOUSE!

 

 

On September 18, President Obama announced a new Executive Order and National Strategy for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (National Strategy) to carry out recommendations given by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). CDDEP Director Ramanan Laxminarayan was one of 15 key advisors on the concurrently-released PCAST report.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now has resources available online related to these announcements, including a webpage on the National Strategy, in addition to the publicly-available White House materials. A summary of all of these, with links to each page, is below. A table of contents for where to find information on specific topics is also available below.

Three Things to Know:

  • This year alone, at least two million Americans will become sickened by antibiotic resistant infections, and 23,000 Americans will die. 
  • Antibiotic resistance costs the U.S. over $20 billion in healthcare expenses each year. 
  • These important plans are part of a request for $30 million for CDC’s Detect and Protect Initiative and $14 million of the National Healthcare Safety Network to ramp up this fight. These strategies and the funds needed to implement them are a down-payment to improve the nation’s ability to tackle the biggest drug-resistant threats.  

 

New CDC Materials and Links Available for Use:

National Strategy Webpage    |    CDC Director Frieden’s Blog Post

Infographic: Examples of When Antibiotics are Urgent and Necessary
