October 1, 2013 memo from North Carolina State Epidemiologist, Megan Davies, to All NC Healthcare Providers

In North Carolina, every healthcare organization that performs invasive procedures (including injections) is required to designate a credentialed staff person to receive infection control training and implement an infection control program.  The approved infection control curriculum developed by SPICE prepares designated healthcare providers to implement the North Carolina rule,  10A NCAC 41A .0206 INFECTION PREVENTION – HEALTH CARE SETTINGS.  The outpatient curriculum, revised in 2013, contains seven training modules. Learners will be able to ensure and systematically assess that their facility has the appropriate infection prevention policies and procedures in place to allow healthcare personnel to provide safe patient care consistent with the NC communicable disease rule .0206.

  • Module A: North Carolina Laws Concerning Infection Prevention
  • Module B: Complying with the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Rule
  • Module C: Epidemiology and Risk of Infections
  • Module D: Outbreaks and Safe Injection Practices
  • Module E: Principles and Practices of Asepsis, Hand Hygiene, and Environmental Issues in Disease Transmission
  • Module F: Principles of Disinfection and Sterilization
  • Module G: Application of Cleaning, Disinfection and Sterilization Principles

The outpatient curriculum is offered in three formats: on-line, classroom, and webinar.
