Gram-negative bloodstream infection NEWS from NHS Improvement 2018
"In England, Gram-negative bloodstream infections (GNBSIs) are increasing despite the decreases seen in Meticillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA) bloodstream infection and Clostridium difficile infections (CDI). The Government have therefore set an ambition to reduce healthcare associated GNBSI by 50% by 2020/21"
NHS Improvement have developed a questionnaire following feedback from a number of events held by NHS Improvement (NHSI) in 2017-18. Healthcare workers at these events indicated that access to evidence to reduce Gram-negative bloodstream infections is difficult to find.
Background: To support health and social care workers reduce Gram-negative bloodstream infections, NHSI have set out a programme of work that is multi-modal in its approach. To develop tools and resources that are useful and provide behaviour change, it is essential to engage with the stakeholders who will be using these resources. NHSI have been working with partners such as NHS England, Public Health England and colleagues in health and social care to support a reduction in healthcare associated GNBSI. This questionnaire is an important part of stakeholder engagement to ensure we gain insight from those working in health and social care and better understand what would support you in terms of access to evidence and guidelines.
