Improving Outcomes in UTI Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative

The Improving Outcomes in UTI (IOU) Antibiotic Stewardship Collaborative for long-term care facilities is an outstanding opportunity for health care facilities to meet antimicrobial stewardship requirements and to perform ongoing quality improvement.

This is a joint project between University of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Through this program you will obtain:

  • Evidence-based and validated tools to improve the diagnosis and treatment of suspected UTIs;
  • Access to UTI educational opportunities;
  • Your facility's personalized dashboard of information to track your AS program and to use in your QA/QI meetings; and
  • Monthly certificate of participation in an AS quality improvement project.
