The Coalition, in partnership with the Massachusetts Hospital Association, are currently registering hospitals to the upcoming C. difficile Prevention Collaborative. We have asked hospitals to create improvement teams including hospital leaders, environmental services, clinicians from leadership and the front line, lab, and pharmacy in addition to infection prevention.

The participation of leadership will be key to the success of your hospital’s team. We know that senior leadership support is critical to successful and lasting improvement. We strongly urge you to attend this one hour call.
