Infection Prevention and Control Training for Healthcare Professionals

Healthcare professionals (HCPs) are the first line of defense against healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and the cross-transmission of germs in healthcare settings. These trainings will empower HCPs to better identify and mitigate HAI risks and occupational exposures.

Let’s Talk Patient Safety: Reducing HAI Transmission Risk
  • Module 1: “What’s the Risk?”
