Education, Training, and Competencies
Concurrent Education Session - 60 minutes
This session will describe the findings of the 2018 Hiring Practices in U.S. Infection Prevention and Control Departments Survey. The survey was administered to members of two APIC chapters (Delaware Valley/Philadelphia and Mile High) and collected baseline data on recruitment, hiring, training, and retention practices for Infection Preventionists. During this session the survey findings will be compared to the published literature and differences between APIC chapters will be examined. The session will conclude with facilitated open audience discussion based on a prepared set of questions crafted to synthesize connections between the findings and real-world experience.
