FHA is hosting the bi-annual IP Fundamentals for the Novice Infection Preventionists Six-Part Virtual Training Series. The series is designed for those new to the IP role and responsible for the implementation of infection prevention programs that drive sustainable reduction in harm related to hospital-associated infections. The series will be led by nationally recognized infection prevention experts Linda Greene, RN, MPS, CIC, FAPIC; and Barbara Russell, RN, MPH, CIC, BHSA, FAPIC. We are also pleased to have presentations from Julie Gnage, MPH, CIC, Director of Infection Prevention and Kim Streit, Senior Vice President, FHA.
The program is designed to focus on fundamental knowledge and core competencies for current infection preventionists who are new to their role (less than two years) or those interested in learning more about the role of infection prevention in the acute care setting. Please feel free to share this invitation to join with others in your organization who are leading infection prevention efforts.
