Training Overview

Rates of healthcare-associated infection continue to decline due, in part, to an organized collaboration between healthcare facilities and public health partners. These successes have likely been influenced by in-depth assessments that reinforce the need for basic infection prevention and control practices. This session will review the history of healthcare-associated infection and the many interventions that have influenced outcomes.  

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.

This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact
