Minimum Expectations for Safe Care Across the Continuum:
New CDC Guide for Infection Prevention


   October 19, 2011   2-3:30 p.m. ET

Premier invites you to participate in this program, as part of Premier's Advisor Live® audioconference series, featuring important healthcare information. There is no charge to participate. Register now - as space is limited.

Repeated outbreaks resulting from unsafe practices, such as syringe reuse, along with breaches of infection control noted during CMS inspections in ambulatory surgical centers and other healthcare delivery sites, indicate the need for better infection prevention across the entire healthcare system, including all outpatient settings.

This webinar will cover:

  • Review data on outbreaks and patient notifications due to failure to follow basic aseptic technique and infection control.
  • Discuss the newly released CDC Guide to Infection Prevention in Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care.
  • Describe the results of a recent national survey on injection practices of clinicians in U.S. healthcare settings.
  • Review resources, educational programs and materials available to promote awareness of safe injection practices and advance basic patient safety across the continuum.
