Prevention of Hospital Infections by Intervention and Training
Acronym: PROHIBIT Grant agreement number: 241928 EC contributions: 2,999,934 EUR Duration: 48 months Starting date: 01/01/2010 Funding scheme: FP7 Collaborative project Healthcare-associated infections are adverse events in health care delivery which are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. It is not known what practices have been adopted by European hospitals to prevent such events and whether they are effective. The aim of PROHIBIT is to understand existing guidelines and practices to prevent healthcare associated infections in European hospitals, identify factors that enable and reduce compliance with best practices, and test the effectiveness of interventions of known efficacy. The information will be synthesized to develop recommendations for the EU, policy makers, managers and medical professionals.
