We’re proud to present a product that enables Residential Aged Care to meet the standards in Antimicrobial Stewardship with our AMS Quality Improvement Compendium for Pneumonia.
It is common for residents of Residential Aged Care to acquire Pneumonia and for Pneumonia to be identified and diagnosed without a medical assessment.
Bug Control can make AMS easy. Analyse your surveillance data and choose from one or all of our RN developed compendiums to improve the well-being of residents, reduce inappropriate use of antibiotics in your facility and meet the AMS standard requirements.
Pneumonia is the most commonly treated infection with antibiotics in aged care. Preventing Pneumonia is essential to reduce the use of antimicrobials and reduce antimicrobial resistance.
Recent studies indicate a strong correlation between pneumonia and poor oral hygiene.
Informed by one of the largest studies to date, our resource pack provides your facility with all the educational resources it needs to implement a quality improvement initiative in your facility to reduce the risk of Pneumonia by improving the oral hygiene of your residents.
The resource pack comprises:
A video presentation for registered nurses or healthcare workers in a leadership position.
