• Easy to use tool for satisfying new Medicare requirements

    On the heels of the National Quality Partners (NQP) PlaybookTM on Antibiotic Stewardship in Acute Care, the National Quality Forum is excited to launch the next version of the NQP PlaybookTM: Antibiotic Stewardship in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care.

    As an added benefit, NQF members receive a 50% discount on the National Quality Partners (NQP) PlaybookTM: Antibiotic Stewardship in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care.

    Crafted with input from more than 50 key experts and stakeholders, this NQP PlaybookTM includes solutions to the challenges that post-acute and long-term care facilities face when implementing antibiotic stewardship.

    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 75 percent of the antibiotics in nursing homes are prescribed inappropriately.

    To address this issue, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its conditions of participation for long-term care facilities to include requirements related to antibiotic stewardship. These requirements will come into effect at the end of 2018.

    The playbook compiles the many antibiotic stewardship resources available into one, easy to use tool for use in satisfying the new requirements and building an effective and comprehensive program.

    To learn more, purchase this must-have resource in the NQF Store or purchase it at a 50% discount as an NQF Member.
