Communication Toolkit: Healthcare-Associated Infections and Antibiotic Resistance

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) developed a toolkit to help public health departments enhance communication and coordination around healthcare-associated infection (HAI) prevention and stopping the spread of antibiotic resistance. Health departments can use these tools to reach and engage various public health and healthcare audiences, including hospitals, patient care providers, facility support staff, the media, and many others who are critical to raising awareness and taking action to contain and prevent HAIs. The toolkit includes:

  • Key Messages and Talking Points
  • Tips for Working with the Media
  • How to Sustain the Conversation around HAIs
  • Social Media Guide and Sample Content
  • Calendar of HAI Related Events

Download these tools, personalize them by adding your organization’s logo, and adapt the content to meet the needs of your state and local audiences. For assistance with using the suite of tools, watch this webinar.
