Shaping the Future of Infection Prevention
in Long-Term Care
In 2017 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) will require that each long-term care facility (LTCF) create an Infection Prevention and Control Program (IPCP) and designate an Infection Preventionist (IP) for which implementation and management of the Infection Prevention and Control Program is their major responsibility. They further maintain that the Infection Preventionist receive specialized training in the field of Infection Prevention and Control.
All staff within a long-term care facility receive basic training in infection prevention and control but the expectation is that the Infection Preventionist's training will go well beyond basic training. They will require that the Infection Preventionist be a healthcare professional with specialized training in infection prevention and control beyond their initial professional degree.
Infection Prevention and Control Resources is offering a two-day comprehensive training course that will provide the Infection Preventionist with the tools to set up an effective Infection Prevention and Control Program along with the elements required to create a successful program.
Examples from real situations will be discussed and tools to help perform their job will be shared.
Persons successfully completing the program will receive a certificate indicating that the have completed a training program in Infection Prevention and Control in the Long-Term Care Setting.
