This program will review a comprehensive and simple
technique to prepare for and address any emergent microorganism threats such as
CRE and MERS-CoV. During this webinar, isolation precautions, hand
hygiene, and disinfection of the environment, amongst other prevention
techniques, will be discussed. The differences between the “prevention of
transmission” vs. the “prevention of the healthcare-associated infection (HAI)”
will also be presented.
- Learn the CDC approach to tackling emergent pathogens by addressing the three common
sources of infection transmission.
- Review the evidence-based practices for emergent pathogens.
- Discuss the differences between the prevention of transmission of HAI’s and the
prevention of the HAI.
