This four-day course is intended to provide infection preventionists in acute care settings with the opportunity to develop their knowledge of healthcare-associated infections and to improve their skills in clinical surveillance. This course will enable learners to know NC Laws and legal aspects of infection control, how to conduct an infection control assessment, how to do surveillance and successfully report data, know pathophysiology and microbiology of healthcare associated infections, and how to report HAIs to NHSN.
Currently, funding from CDC through NC DHHS makes it possible for SPICE to offer this course with no registration fee.
