About the Collaborative Approach to Prevention of Bloodstream Infections in Dialysis

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Mid-Atlantic Renal Coalition, established a prevention collaborative of motivated outpatient dialysis facilities in 2009. The goal of CDC's Dialysis BSI Prevention Collaborative is to work together to prevent bloodstream infections (BSIs) in hemodialysis and spur a broader interest in preventing infections among the dialysis community.
The prevention collaborative consists of freestanding and hospital-based outpatient dialysis facilities across the country. Participating facilities measure BSIs using the dialysis event surveillance module in CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), and are creating and implementing a package of evidence-based practices to prevent these infections.
In an effort to decrease rates of bloodstream infections among hemodialysis patients, the Prevention Collaborative has developed a set of interventions that participating facilities have implemented.

Why a Prevention Collaborative Model?

The collaborative approach leads to interactions that facilitate the recognition and dissemination of good ideas between participants. This approach has led to major BSI reductions in other healthcare settings.
