Communal Living Project Firstline Infection Prevention Series
KFMC Health Improvement Partners and Kansas Department of Health and Environment Healthcare-Associated Infections & Antimicrobial Resistance Program are pleased to be able to provide a facilitated infection prevention training opportunity to healthcare workers in communal living settings. Project Firstline, training developed by the CDC, consists of short videos, followed by group discussion.
This comprehensive infection control program is designed to provide foundational and practical knowledge to front line workers. We encourage you to gather your team and take advantage of this 8-week “Lunch and Learn” series to increase your infection prevention knowledge. Participants will learn the “why” behind infection control to give them the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions to keep themselves, their coworkers and residents/clients safe. To stop the spread of infectious disease threats—including COVID-19—anyone working in any healthcare setting needs a basic knowledge of infection control and must understand and be ready to use infection control processes and procedures throughout their workday, including during every patient care activity and healthcare interaction. CDC’s Project Firstline is a collaborative of diverse healthcare, public health, and academic partners that is working to provide engaging, innovative, and effective infection control training for millions of frontline U.S. healthcare workers as well as members of the public health workforce.
Over an 8-week period, attendees will spend 30 minutes per week focusing on the following topics. Participants must register for each of the eight interactive virtual sessions.
Session 1: The Concept of Infection Control. This session will cover the basic ideas behind infection control and how infection control actions help keep you, your residents, your coworkers and your community safe.
