• The Resource Library has search and filter options to help you narrow your search. To ensure you’re finding all potential matches to your search, we suggest that you search for a single word in the “Keywords” box (e.g., “sepsis” rather than “sepsis validation”). You can also filter by resource type using the dropdown menu, by topic category, and by publication year.

     

  • Yes, but please include attribution to ACDIS and the original author as follows:

    • ACDIS. Last name, first name. Name of organization, Publication date. Website link.
  • While the majority of the resources in the Resource Library are only available to ACDIS members, there are quite a few places non-members can access free educational tools. You’ll find unlocked resources in the following sections:

    • Free & Sponsored Resources: From time to time, ACDIS’ sponsors provide members with valuable insight into CDI topics of the day. These free webinars and focused research briefs can all be found in this section. Additionally, you’ll find free ACDIS webinars here too.
    • Videos: If you’re looking for guidance on the ACDIS website offerings, tutorials, and recordings of the Chapter Advisory Board calls, look in this section of the website.
    • The ACDIS Podcast: The podcast is a free biweekly show focused on the latest news and tips in the CDI industry. Each episode is hosted by ACDIS Director Brian Murphy and one of our expert Boot Camp instructors and features an industry guest. You can register and tune in for the live show every other Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. eastern, or Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or Spotify and listen on the go. The on-demand podcast goes live the Friday following the live show date.
    • Position papers: These papers are the association’s official, consensus stance on an issue. ACDIS position papers set a recommended standard for the CDI industry to follow. They advocate on behalf of a certain position or offer concrete solutions for a particular problem. All current members of the ACDIS Advisory Board must review/approve a position paper and are encouraged to materially contribute to its creation.

    If you’re looking for free CDI articles, items published in ACDIS’ weekly eNewsletter, CDI Strategies, and on the ACDIS Blog are all available to both members and non-members alike.

  • Sample educational tools, job descriptions, policies and procedures, and query forms found in the Resource Library are contributed by the ACDIS membership and reviewed for compliance, helpfulness, and accuracy by the ACDIS Forms & Tools Library Committee on a rolling basis.

    If you have a tool, sample, or resource to share, please send it to ACDIS Editor Linnea Archibald (larchibald@acdis.org).

  • Sample educational tools, job descriptions, policies and procedures, and query forms found in the Resource Library are contributed by the ACDIS membership and reviewed for compliance, helpfulness, and accuracy by the ACDIS Forms & Tools Library Committee on a rolling basis.

    The Forms & Tools Committee is comprised of 8-10 CDI professionals from varying professional backgrounds, organization types, and job title, along with a committee coordinator from the ACDIS leadership team (at the moment, ACDIS Editor Linnea Archibald holds this role). They meet monthly to review all submitted materials and determine their worthiness to be published in the Library.

    While the Committee does not edit submissions, they do pen recommendations to go along with each sample to help those adapting samples for their own use. While the samples aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution for all CDI programs everywhere, samples the Resource section of the website can be a starting point for developing your own forms, tools, policies, and procedures.

    If you have a tool, sample, or resource to share, please send it to ACDIS Editor Linnea Archibald (larchibald@acdis.org).
