About the Program

The AHRQ Safety Program for Intensive Care Units (ICUs): Preventing CLABSI and CAUTI is enrolling ICUs across the United States to take part in a 12-month program designed to reduce or eliminate central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI) and catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). The program aims to achieve these goals by fostering the implementation and adaption of the AHRQ Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) and evidence-based practices. This complementary program is funded and guided by AHRQ and led by the Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET), the not-for-profit research and educational affiliate of the American Hospital Association (AHA).
