Multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacteria are being seen more commonly in many areas of the world. It is unclear whether specific infection prevention and control (IPAC) or antibiotic control measures will be effective in controlling their spread. The new GNR Toolkit contains information to help IPAC professionals make informed decisions on what measures to implement when needed. In particular, there is a best practices document developed with the assistance of 12 IPAC experts. The document focuses on routine and special practices, screening, surveillance, antisepsis, and disinfection. The toolkit also contains useful information on laboratory practices, antimicrobial resistance, outbreak investigation tools, and educational material. This toolkit has been developed by IPAC Canada in collaboration with APIC.

Handy forms, references, fact sheets, flowcharts, checklists, and samples provide the framework to interface with healthcare facilities and local public health preparedness plans.
