In Highlight is an effort initiated by the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Division of Patient Safety and Quality as part of the Illinois Campaign to Eliminate Clostridium difficile (ICE C. diff). In Highlight provides a platform for health care facilities and local health departments across the state to share stories on their implementation of C. diff prevention activities.
This template is provided to guide you in describing your activity. IDPH will format your submission to fit within the In Highlight bulletin and request additional information if needed. IDPH will provide the final draft to you for approval before sending out or posting on the ICE C. diff website.
