Investigators from the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion, Canada and from the University Health Network in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, sought to determine if positive deviance (PD) can reduce healthcare-associated resistant organisms, specifically methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE), and C. difficile.

Five acute care hospitals were recruited to implement PD at six sites. Data on four-month resistant organism-related infection rates, the volume of alcohol handrub and soap used, and the number of gowns and gloves used, were collected at baseline and then for 12 months prospectively. Social network mapping was conducted at the project start and end. Qualitative staff interviews were conducted at the project end. The percent change from baseline in quarterly resistant organism-related infection rates were measured from September 2009 to December 2010. Process measures were collected and measured in a similar fashion.
