Webinar: Reality Check- The Infection Preventionist Can't Do It Alone

January 28, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM

Learn improvement strategies to energize long-term care infection prevention and control programs with innovative approaches and practical tips. With challenges like staff turnover and higher acuity, leveraging partners and resources to improve efficiencies is vital. Skilled nursing facility infection prevention activities are often fragmented, and we’ll walk through real-world scenarios demonstrating how an integrated, coordinated, collaborative process creates synergies leading to reduced infection rates. This session focuses on useful best practices and tangible resources that can be readily implemented. Join presenter Theresa Mandel, RN BSN QCP with Health Quality Innovators for this information filled webinar.
