EPI® Education Series: Effectively Using Data

Newly revised and packaged from our popular EPI® Education Series!

The use of data, especially in support of NHSN, is essential to the role of the IP. The collection, analysis, reporting and application of data require specialized skills for which many IPs have received little or no training. In addition, many IPs struggle to convert data into meaningful information necessary to optimally support their facilities’ improvement efforts. Through this course, attendees will learn how to make use of the data they gather, whether integrating NHSN into a comprehensive data management approach, using data to assess and monitor the implementation of evidence based practices, analyzing and evaluating outcomes of care or communicating information to various stakeholders throughout the facility.

Modules include:

  • NHSN Basics
  • Using and Reporting Data
  • NHSN Analytics (Rates and SIRs)

Length/Contact Hours: 2.5 hours

Cost:Members: $200 / Non-members: $275

Expiration Date: December 31, 2020
