Applying AACTT

Study on applying AACTT to two studies of interventions that targeted surgical antibiotic prophylaxis

In this video, we will apply the AACTT framework from Step 1.6 to two studies of interventions that targeted surgical antibiotic prophylaxis. Both studies targeted adult patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass grafts.

As seen in the study, both interventions improve performance; however, they did not reach the target of 95% reliability in the first six months after the intervention started. This coincides with the additional factors mentioned in Step 1.8, proving that establishing a reliable process and constant reviewing is crucial to improving performance.

In the downloads section you will find a blank copy of the Supplementary Material for Presseau – use the information from slides 2-4 of the video presentation to complete the single Actor version with details from Sun and the multiple Actor version for Dull. The slides are available to download in PDF form.

Once complete, the model answers for both the single and multiple Actor versions can be found in the downloads section. In the comments let us know if your answers were the same or if there were any differences.
