Starter Packs

We recognize that many facilities need assistance in making reductions in HACs in addition to the topic areas for which we are offering in-person training. The HIIN Starter Packs are intended to meet your immediate needs and help jumpstart your current improvement efforts.

Developed by national content experts, as well as the Michigan Health and Hospital Association, Wisconsin Hospital Association, and Illinois Health and Hospital Association, these "grab and go" tools will help you to design a plan for small tests of change to make meaningful reductions in HACs.

Starter Pack Contents:

  1. Webinar #1 - Introduction to the Topic, Best Practices, Measurement, Instructions for Completing the Gap Analysis Tool
  2. Webinar #2 - Setting Goals, Prioritizing Identified Gaps, Engaging Stakeholders, PDSA, Measuring Progress (Webinar #2 is the same for each Starter Pack)
  3. Design Plan for Small Tests of Change Form (located in Webinar 2 "Slides" hyperlink)
  4. Resources for each topic area
  5. Gap Analysis Tool
