CUSP Toolkit

The Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) toolkit includes training tools to make care safer by improving the foundation of how your physicians, nurses, and other clinical team members work together. It builds the capacity to address safety issues by combining clinical best practices and the science of safety.

Introduction to CUSP

Three videos describe the CUSP toolkit's success in reducing infections in hospital settings.

How to Use the CUSP Toolkit

The CUSP Toolkit is composed of instructional modules that a unit leader (facilitator) can use to teach his or her unit team members about CUSP principles.

CUSP Toolkit Modules

Created for clinicians by clinicians, the CUSP toolkit is modular and modifiable to meet individual unit needs. Each module includes teaching tools and resources to support change at the unit level, presented through facilitator notes that take you step-by-step through the module, presentation slides, tools, videos.

Content Calls for the Nationwide Implementation of the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP)

These webinars occurred during first national CUSP implementation project where hospital teams pioneered the use of CUSP. That project focused on reducing central line-associated blood stream infections, Because these webinars address broad issues surrounding CUSP, they may be useful to clinical teams that want more details on how to implement CUSP.
