Title

Saving Lives - High Impact Interventions (HIIs)

Author(s)Department of Health
AbstractThe HIIs are an evidence-based approach that relate to key clinical procedures or care processes that can reduce the risk of infection if performed appropriately. They have been developed to provide a practical way of highlighting the critical elements of a particular procedure or care process (a care bundle), the key actions required and a means of demonstrating reliability.
The HIIs incorporate care bundles based on best-identified practice and care process and actions associated with quality patient care. Whether they are used in a coronary care unit or a nursing home, the HIIs can also be adapted locally to any healthcare setting as a tool for improvement to help address particular practice or care process issues.

The High Impact Interventions include guidance on:
