Clostridium difficile infection objectives


Sets out the objectives for acute trusts and clinical commissioning groups to make continuous improvement in Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) care.

Clostridium difficile infection assessment tool and action plan guidance XLSX, 34.0 KB

Organisations may wish to use this example assessment tool to identify risk factors and good practice in CDI prevention and control.

These objectives are updated each financial year. The methodology used when calculating CDI objectives recognises the changing rate of CDI improvement and circumstances where the infection is caused outside of the hospital where it was identified. 

To support learning and understanding, this methodology encourages commissioners to consider sanctions for breach of CDI objectives only where there are lapses in care.
