Concurrent Education Session - 60 minutes
Healthcare workers (HCWs) are the first line of defense against healthcare-associated infections and the cross-transmission of germs in healthcare settings. These trainings empower healthcare workers (HCWs) to better identify and mitigate healthcare-associated infection risks and occupational exposures. The new training tools include a graphic novel for EVS professionals, illustrating the important role of EVS personnel in the prevention of HAIs, and an interactive training tool specifically for clinical staff (nurses, medical assistants, health educators, etc.). The training for clinicians focuses on risk recognition and breaking the chain of infection in a busy healthcare setting.
