CME from CDC: What You Need to Know About Infection Control
Each year in the U.S., at least 2.8 million people get an antibiotic-resistant infection, and more than 35,000 people die. It’s critical that all healthcare workers understand proper infection control procedures and use them every day.
Although healthcare facilities and infection control experts have made significant progress in preventing some types of infections, there is still a great deal of work to do.
CDC and Medscape have launched a series of six CME/CE activities addressing the key issues surrounding infection prevention in healthcare facilities. These courses feature discussions with CDC and external experts in infection prevention.
