Zero Tolerance for HAIs: Pharmacists Take the Next Step
Towards Quality Improvement and Patient Safety
A Series of 10 Case Workshops with Antimicrobial Stewardship Meeting Simulation
at 10 State SHP Annual Meetings
"An important clinical responsibility of the pharmacist is to ensure the rational use of
antimicrobial agents through the health system."
ASHP Statement on the Pharmacist's Role
In 2009, "Zero Tolerance for Failure: Pharmacists Fight Back!" brought application-based
education on appropriate management of HAIs to 1000 health-system pharmacists in 8 State
SHPs. It was clear that effectively addressing HAI challenges required (1) continuous and
sequential educational training and (2) expanding the reach to health-system pharmacists
across the entire US. This resulted in the Initiative’s second phase in 2010—"Zero Tolerance
for HAIs: Pharmacists Take the Next Step Towards Quality Improvement and Patient
Safety". With Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists (SIDP) as the educational
partner, this Next Step focused on addressing process-related issues in HAI management
by empowering 1600 health-system pharmacists from 10 State SHPs with practical knowledge
to successfully manage HAIs.
