Funding Opportunity for Montana Hospitals Antimicrobial Stewardship
November 6, 2017
The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) has funding available for all Montana hospitals to assist with the implementation of antimicrobial stewardship programs. Following are the details about this funding from the Montana DPHHS.
We are encouraging all acute care hospitals to apply for this funding in the 2017/2018 funding cycle. The funding is designed to support hospitals in the development of an antimicrobial stewardship program (AMS). All hospitals that apply will receive funding. Final funding amounts will be based upon success of completing associated deliverables.
PLEASE RESPOND BY DECEMBER 15, 2017.
What hospitals need to do to receive AMS funding is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Fill out the FY2018 Montana DPHHS AMS application letter.
- Sign it.
- Return it to Montana DPHHS.
We also request that you fill out this short five-question survey. This survey will allow us to better understand how to target future AMS efforts.
