Compliance with industry-standard infection control guidelines is good for patients, employees, and practices. Failure to follow them can result in serious infections. NC Infection Control Curriculum for Outpatient Settings is offered in two three-hour sessions, one week apart. Employee training webinars offer the opportunity to ask questions and still meet all infection control training requirements. One of the risks in any procedure is the transmission of disease or infection. This employee training webinar will give you the tools you need to be sure that your patients receive the excellent care that is the cornerstone of your practice. Practical solutions to your infection control challenges will be provided as basic principles of epidemiology, disinfection, sterilization, and techniques to reduce the spread of infection are reviewed. In addition, discussion of CDC guidelines and recommendations provided by such organizations as OSAP and APIC will be an important part of this employee training presentation, thus positioning your practice to provide a safe environment for both patients and employees.*
