Advancing ASC Quality: ASC TIPs

Advancing ASC Quality

To support the ASC industry's focus on high quality care, the ASC Quality Collaboration is assembling ASC Tools for Infection Prevention, or ASC TIPs. Our goal is to make infection prevention resources readily accessible to ASCs by bringing them together in one location.

The following ASC TIPs are now available:

Each toolkit is available in two versions, BASIC and EXPANDED:

  • The BASIC version of the toolkit includes only essential resources.
  • The EXPANDED version of the toolkit contains both essential resources and a broader array of materials, such as assessment tools, implementation aids, training materials, monitoring tools, workplace reminders, and guidelines from leading authorities.

The resources in these toolkits may only be used for internal improvement and education efforts. They may not be used for commercial purposes.

Please refer also to the CDC's guide, Guide to Infection Prevention in Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care and the accompanying checklist Infection Prevention Checklist for Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care.

Additional resources on these infection prevention topics may be available for a fee from organizations such as AORN and APIC.
