Infection Prevention and Control Training for Healthcare Professionals | Let’s Talk Patient Safety: Reducing HAI Transmission Risk
Healthcare professionals are the first line of defense against healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and the spread of germs in healthcare settings. CDC now offers a new online interactive infection control training, “Let’s Talk Patient Safety: Reducing HAI Transmission Risk,” to help healthcare professionals identify infection risks and prevent the spread of HAIs.
- Module 1: “What’s the Risk?” In this interactive scenario, HCPs must identify infection risks and take action to protect patients, colleagues, and visitors.
- Module 2: “Chain of Infection” This story-based interactive module challenges professionals to break the chain of infection in a busy healthcare environment and educates them on the consequences of not following infection prevention and control recommendations.
