Free Webinar in Series on Infection Prevention in Healthcare Facilities (August 21)

A free webinar entitled Empowering Nurses to Protect Themselves and Their Patients: The Importance of Collaboration between Nurses and Environmental Services will be offered on August 21, 2017 (1:00 pm ET). This webinar is the second in a series launched by the Nursing Infection Control Education (NICE) Network addressing the key issues surrounding infection prevention in healthcare facilities.

Breaches in cleaning and disinfection practices in the healthcare settings can be a significant factor in the transmission of healthcare-associated infections. Preventing contamination between the environment and patients is critical to breaking the chain of infection. This webinar will focus on how collaboration between nurses and environmental services prevents and reduces the spread of healthcare-associated infections. Speakers will cover the application of standards, guidelines, best practices, and established processes in infection control.

The American Nurses Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and various nursing specialty organizations, including ANNA, have partnered to form the NICE Network, which seeks to empower nurses to protect themselves and their patients by providing infection prevention and control training to U.S. nurses.

Future webinar topics will include:

  • Acute Care-Environmental Infection Control (October and November 2017)
  • Procedural-Environmental Infection Control (February 2018)
  • Injection Safety (March 2018)
