The Joint Commission and Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) have been collaborating since late 2015 on a 3-year project titled, “Adaptation & Dissemination of Outpatient Infection Prevention (ADOPT).”
The goal of the project is to adapt, enhance, and disseminated current CDC guidance on infection prevention and control in ambulatory care settings.
The Joint Commission team and CDC staff on December 27, 2017, announced that two new infection prevention guides for outpatient settings will be released mid-year 2018. The guides are based on the existing CDC “Guide to Infection Prevention for Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care.”
Other tools and resources in development include an electronic “Infection Prevention Checklist for Outpatient Settings,” based on existing CDC guidance.
