New learning opportunities
Summer HAI Workshops — Held in five cities across the state
Healthcare-associated Infections — Targeting Acute, Ambulatory and Long-term Care Settings
Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) cut across all care settings – acute, ambulatory and long-term. All settings are currently (or soon will be) required to have an infection control and prevention program including an antimicrobial stewardship plan. These workshops will provide the latest evidence regarding the prevention of HAIs across settings with a strong focus on incorporating this evidence in clinical practice. Regulatory considerations, antibiotic resistance and stewardship, prevention of C. diff and other HAIs, specimen collection and interpretation of lab results, environmental disinfection and control, and specific strategies to bridge the gap in coordinating care when patients transition from one setting to another will be included.

Vaccinating Adults series
Please join the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for a NetConference series on Vaccinating Adults, addressing key issues related to protecting adults from vaccine-preventable diseases. A collaborative effort between the CDC and Maryland Partnership for Prevention and the state immunization program, the Vaccinating Adults series will feature six presentations by experts in promoting, administering, and securing reimbursement for adult immunizations.
The Vaccinating Adults series objectives are to provide information and share insights on the unique challenges associated with vaccinating various subgroups within the adult population.
Immunization providers: physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, DoD paraprofessionals, medical students, state and local immunization programs, etc.
Continuing education will be available for each event.
