The use of data, especially in support of NHSN, is essential to the role of the infection preventionist (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.
This new, virtual instructor led class, presented by APIC experts, is designed to help novice IPs build competency in the use and application of a variety of types of data, integrate NHSN into a comprehensive data management approach, strengthen HAI prevention and reduction metrics, ensure compliance with mandatory HAI reporting requirements and support IP readiness for board certification. Watch the video introduction to the new virtual learning lab.
