EQuIP Program

The EQuIP program (Education, Quality and Infection Prevention) provides healthcare facility staff with educational support to improve:

  • infection prevention
  • antimicrobial stewardship, and
  • quality of care

through education, mentorship, collaborative learning, and data sharing.

The EQuIP model was created by Qualis Health, with funding from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in partnership with the Washington State Department of Health, Washington State Hospital Association (WSHA), and local chapters of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC). The program has expanded from its original focus on critical access hospitals, to include long term care facilities and outpatient settings.
