Summer HAI Workshops — Held in five cities across the state


Healthcare-associated Infections — Targeting Acute, Ambulatory and Long-term Care Settings


Purpose

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.
