  • 2014 HHS APIC-SHEA Partnership in Prevention Award—Deadline approaching

    Do you know a team of prevention leaders in the U.S. acute care community who have achieved wide-scale reductions and progress toward the elimination of targeted healthcare-associated infections (HAIs)? APIC and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) are partnering with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to award the 2014 Partnership in Prevention Award. The award was established to highlight and promote the work of a multidisciplinary team at one U.S. hospital that has achieved sustainable improvements based on the concepts of the “National Action Plan to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections: Roadmap to Elimination” and is helping to achieve the goals outlined in the HHS Partnership for Patients. 

    We invite you to nominate a team for this award. Please contact the HHS/APIC/SHEA Awards team at if you have any questions. The application deadline is August 29, 2014.

  • Spare a minute—make a difference

    You may have seen the op-ed from the CDC Director, Dr. Tom Frieden that APIC sent to all U.S. members. Your support for CDC infection prevention programs, including the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), is critical. If you have not already, please take one minute to contact Congress backing Dr. Frieden and supporting NHSN, the Prevention Epicenters, and the Detect and Protect Against Antibiotic Resistance Initiative. Congress has already heard from CDC, the media, and Washington-based organizations, but the message that matters most is yours.

    Add your voice to those calling for needed investments in federal infection prevention programs.
