Superior Health Quality Alliance developed a toolkit to assist home health care organizations to implement critical infection prevention and control measures to improve patient sepsis outcomes. The toolkit includes a training program outline that organizations can implement through an interactive and integrated team approach with all home health professionals, including home health aides. The toolkit and training program focuses on clinical indicators in sepsis’s early recognition and management within the home health care setting. It provides evidence-based and best practice education on protocols and tools to improve care processes to prevent the development of sepsis for high-risk patients.
