CME from CDC: What You Need to Know About Infection Control
Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die as a direct result of these infections. It’s critical that all healthcare workers understand proper infection control procedures and use them every day.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Medscape are launching a series of six CME/CE activities addressing the key issues surrounding infection prevention in healthcare facilities.
The series includes:
- Risk Recognition in Healthcare Settings (Available Now)
- May: Environmental Services and Infection Prevention
- June: Recognizing Infection Risks in Medical Equipment
- July: Infection Transmission Risks Associated with Nonsterile Glove Use
- August: Infection Prevention: A Hierarchy of Controls Approach
- September: Injection Safety: A System Approach
These CME-/CE- certified activities are available at: http://www.medscape.org/
