Long Term Care and Communal Living Project Firstline Infection Prevention Regional Trainings
KFMC Health Improvement Partners and Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Healthcare-Associated Infections & Antimicrobial Resistance Program, are pleased to be able to provide in-person infection prevention training opportunities to healthcare workers in long term care and communal living settings throughout Kansas. Project Firstline, training developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), consists of short videos, a PowerPoint presentation, and group discussion.
This infection control training is designed to provide foundational and practical knowledge to frontline workers including CNAs, dietary, housekeeping, and laundry staff. We encourage you to gather frontline staff and take advantage of this opportunity to increase your team’s 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, 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.
