Project Firstline Infection Prevention Regional Trainings for Hospital, Long Term Care, and Communal Living Settings—Summer 2023
KFMC Health Improvement Partners, Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Healthcare-Associated Infections & Antimicrobial Resistance Section, and Kansas Healthcare Collaborative are pleased to be able to provide in-person infection prevention training opportunities to healthcare workers throughout Kansas. The Project Firstline training is developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and consists of short videos, a PowerPoint presentation, and group activities.
This infection prevention and control training is designed to provide foundational and practical knowledge to healthcare workers. The morning session will be targeted towards frontline workers including nurse aides, dietary, housekeeping, laundry, and transportation staff, while the afternoon session will be targeted towards nurses, administrators and leadership. We encourage you to gather 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/patients 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.
The Centers for Disease Control’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.
