About the Toolkit Development
This toolkit was developed based on the experiences of more than 1,000 ICUs that participated in the On the CUSP: Stop BSI project. These ICUs reduced CLABSIs by 41 percent using the CUSP method and resources included in this toolkit.
Health Research and Educational Trust: prime contractor of the project responsible for project administration and management, budget oversight, recruitment of States, and development of State lead resources.
Armstrong Institute: provided educational content and resources for implementation at the hospital unit level. The Institute conceived and developed CUSP and provided faculty who coached hospital teams and presented at educational meetings.
Michigan Hospital Association: coordinated data collection and reporting and provided project implementation and coaching support.
