Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has contracted The Joint Commission to conduct an infection control study of nursing care centers.

The study, titled Implementing standardized measurement of infections in nursing homes: challenges and facilitators, is part of the CDC’s Antibiotic Resistance Solution Initiative that seeks to identify the hurdles to implementing standardized measurement of multidrug-resistant organisms in nursing care centers. Additionally, the study aims to train and initiate laboratory-identified event module data collection in nursing homes, as well as measure organizational and individual perceptions that negatively affect successful implementation of quality improvement initiatives.

The Joint Commission is looking for participants, as this study will help save lives and influence national policy.
