New! A series of six NHSN LTCF train-the-trainer Webinars were conducted in January and February 2016 for Quality Improvement Networks (QINs) and Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs). The purpose of the Webinar training series was to provide detailed information for LTCF enrollment and reporting into the NHSN.

The trainings are useful to new and established LTCF users, as well QIN-QIO and other LTC partner organizations who may engage with LTCFs about NHSN. At the end of the six sessions, participants should be able to establish personal access through Secure Access Management Services (SAMS); complete NHSN enrollment for a facility, setup a LTCF in the NHSN; report and use NHSN to analyze C. difficile LabID events; and create and manage group access for data sharing.
