Webinar - Advancing Infection Prevention Practice in Skilled Nursing

March 23, 2017

9:00 am–11:00 am

CMS' Final Rule mandates that nursing homes will strengthen their infection prevention systems and implement an effective antimicrobial stewardship program.

During this webinar, brought to you by the Washington Health Care Association, presenters will review the Final Rule on infection prevention and introduce you to the Education, Quality Improvement, and Infection Prevention (EQuIP) program, which is designed to address educational needs and to provide mentorship to the novice Infection Preventionists in long term care.

Presenters will discuss key features of the EQuIP program, and how you can prepare to develop and implement a robust infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship program in your setting.
