Advanced Educational Series: Contact Precautions- Advanced

January 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The 2019 Advanced Educational Series in Navigating Infection Control and Antibiotic Stewardship in Long-Term Care was a continuation of the 9-month series hosted by the New England QIN-QIO in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH).  The program ran monthly from January through June of 2019 in the form of three webinars and supplemental “Ask the Experts” conference calls in April and June.
The program provided long-term care facilities with advanced content focusing on antimicrobial stewardship, implementing contact precautions, CDI treatment, management and reporting, diagnostic stewardship and UTI evaluation.  Participation in the advanced series also provided an opportunity to learn directly from experts in the field.
By registering for this program, facilities committed to a six-month program, through active participation in these monthly webinars and calls.
We hope that you were able to attend the first session that was held on January 8th: Contact Precautions – Advanced.
The initial (2018) series is a prerequisite for attending this advanced series.
