NCUIH as a partner within the CDC’s National Training Collaborative Project Firstline launches an open Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes). Using the Project ECHO model of “all teach, all learn”, developed by Sanjeev Arora, M.D., at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, NCUIH takes a system-based approach in this collaborative model to help Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) with the most current up to date strategies around Infection Control through Project Firstline. UIO staff will have the opportunity through this ECHO program to engage with CDC subject matter expert(s) on infection risk recognition, Body Reservoirs and Germ Spread and how this all ties into Infection Control in various healthcare settings.
To provide training on how to recognize tasks in healthcare that can cause germs to move between and among reservoirs and how to apply infection control actions as it relates to these tasks to protect themselves and their patients to reduce or eliminate infection risks.
- Shay Drummond, MPH RN CIC (CDC), Subject Matter Expert and Lecturer
- Explain the Synthesis of Body and Healthcare Environment Reservoirs as it relates to Risk Recognition
- Identify tasks in healthcare that can cause germs to move between and among reservoirs
