Synthesis: Results of AHRQ-Funded HAI Projects

AHRQ has commissioned a 3-year HAI Synthesis Project, which is reviewing and aggregating the findings and results of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) research and implementation projects funded by AHRQ, primarily in the core period from fiscal years 2007 to 2010. The overall project will present important results for dissemination to the field and will report HAI knowledge gaps identified by project teams.

The Synthesis Project includes four distinct pieces that together provide a unique perspective on the results of AHRQ-funded HAI projects:

Advances in the Prevention and Control of HAIs Advances in the Prevention and Control of HAIs, a collection of 19 original articles by AHRQ HAI project leaders focused on the methods and implementation approaches used by the investigators.
American Journal of Infection Control "From Science to Implementation: AHRQ's Program To Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections—Results and Lessons Learned", a special supplement of 16 original articles by AHRQ-funded HAI researchers published in American Journal of Infection Control, the journal of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.
Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology "Preventing Healthcare-Associated Infections: Results and Lessons Learned From AHRQ's HAI Program", a special supplement of 18 original articles by AHRQ-funded researchers published in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
  Synthesis of AHRQ-Funded HAI Projects: FY 2007-2010  will be a full report and summary of project results, as well as gaps identified by the project teams, from the 61 projects included as part of the Synthesis Project.
