Improving Survival Through Policy and Collaboratives
The information in the links below describe efforts of individual healthcare facilities and groups of facilities (often called “collaboratives”) to improve survival of sepsis.
CDC defines a prevention collaborative as when many healthcare facilities engage in efforts to improve an outcome, in this case to reduce sepsis morbidity and mortality. The members of the collaborative use a common, though not necessarily identical, approach, discuss progress regularly and share lessons learned in real time so that others in the group can benefit from the experiences.
