CDC Grand Rounds Webcast: Unsafe Injection Practices in the U.S. Healthcare System

Tuesday, November 13, 2012, 1-2 p.m. ET

Injectable medicines are commonly used in healthcare settings for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various illnesses. Unsafe injection practices put patients at risk of infection, and have been associated with a wide variety of procedures and settings. Unsafe injections also increase the burden on patients, healthcare providers, and medical care and public health systems. This harm is preventable through renewed attention to infection control and injection safety practices. The CDC is hosting a session of their Grand Rounds that will explore the future of injection safety in public health.
