AGA Works to Improve Patient Safety through ADOPT Project

May 4, 2016

The three-year project will help model safe care for practices nationwide.

AGA is collaborating with The Joint Commission and CDC on a new project to help prevent patients from getting health-care-associated infections during outpatient care. The project will help expand the reach, uptake and adoption of guidelines by creating model infection prevention and control plans that can be used by practices nationwide.  
 
Referred to as ADOPT (Adaptation and Dissemination Outpatient Infection PrevenTion) Guidance, the three-year project includes collaborating with a variety of free-standing ambulatory settings and specialties. AGA is one of 12 outpatient-focused professional organizations and 10 ambulatory health-care systems selected by CDC and The Joint Commission.

Each organization will provide information about how current infection prevention materials are used. In addition, each will consult on development of new or adapted infection control plans, helping to ensure they are relevant and easy to use for outpatient care providers.
