Daniel Weinberg co-authored the introduction to "Preventing Healthcare-associated Infections: Results and Lessons Learned from AHRQ's HAI Program," which synsethized the results of AHRQ-funded HAI projects. With funding from AHRW, IMPAQ International and the RAND Corporation synthesized the results and lessons from AHRQ-funded research, disseminated the information, and identified continuing gaps in HAI knowledge. This volume of work includes 18 manuscripts developed by AHRQ-funded HAI project leaders, in which they share their findings. Such works contribute substantially to the research required to prevent HAIs.
