APIC and SHEA CEOs pen Op-Eds aimed at C-suite

APIC CEO Katrina Crist, MBA, CAE, and SHEA CEO Eve Humphreys, MBA, CAE, jointly authored a series of Op-Eds to raise awareness of the need for institutional support from hospital leadership for infection prevention and control and antimicrobial stewardship programs.

 “Commentary: C-suites should see antibiotic stewardship and infection control as one issue,” published June 15 in Modern Healthcare, called on health system leaders to maximize the effectiveness of these programs by aligning them and funding them adequately.  “Is your hospital ready for the next outbreak, epidemic, or even another bad flu season?” ran in Becker’s Clinical Leadership & Infection Control in May.
