IPC in Urban Indian Behavioral Health Settings

August 9, 2023 | 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT

As a proud partner with Project Firstline, the CDC’s National Training Collaborative for Healthcare Infection Control, the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) will use this virtual training to educate frontline healthcare workers on key concepts, actions, and tools related to IPC in the context of UIOs that provide behavioral health services. Attendees will have the opportunity to reinforce their IPC knowledge and will also have the opportunity to engage with subject matter experts and other UIOs.

Event Series Goal:

This series will provide Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) recommendations and resources for Urban Indian Organizations (UIO). The goal is to provide relevant and culturally competent information for UIOs by covering their various services: outreach/referral, behavioral health, and primary care.


  • To improve UIO workers’ knowledge and understanding of general IPC concepts and actions in the UIO setting.
  • To improve UIO workers’ awareness of IPC considerations related to behavioral health services and resources for UIOs.
  • To create space for the webinar attendees to share knowledge, challenges, successes, and resources related to IPC considerations and strategies in a behavioral health setting.
