How to build a high performing infection prevention control program

With significant increase in HAIs in 2020, combined with COVID-19 pandemic pressures, IP staff shortages, and steadily increasing turnover the need for high-performing infection prevention and control (IP&C) programs has never been more evident. Hospitals need high-performing and resilient IPC programs to keep patients, visitors, and health care personnel safe, to comply with mandated public reporting, to battle multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs), to promote antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) efforts, and to improve quality, and financial outcomes. 

In this APIC Live from Industry webinar, Mackenzie Weise, MPH, CIC, Infection Prevention Clinical Program Manager discusses:  

  • Common challenges facing infection prevention teams 
  • Key characteristics of a quality-driven infection prevention and control program 
  • Elements necessary to be successful in implementing and maintain an high-performing IP&C program
