The National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH), as a partner within the CDC’s National Training Collaborative Project Firstline, presents Project ECHO NCUIH. UIO staff will have the opportunity through this program to engage with CDC subject matter expert(s) on targeting Infection Control actions that they should take when challenged in various healthcare settings. Please join us for our sixth session in this series that will focus on accessing up to date toolkits for Infection Control practices during emerging and re-emerging disease threats.
Participants are encouraged to read the following peer reviewed articles for a vibrant dialogue with CDC subject matter experts and UIO peers:

- To encourage the use of CDC Project Firstline developed materials for onsite training.
- Facilitate a global understanding of risk recognition strategies, reservoirs, and germ spread and how it relates to infection control prevention.
- Understand how healthcare workers can incorporate risk recognition strategies and infection control actions every day on the frontline so that it becomes second nature.
- Apply these strategies through case discussions and solve how healthcare workers on the frontline can adequately prepare to deal with emerging and re-emerging disease threats.
- Provide a Toolkit on PFL Training Resources – content and materials to augment on-site training.
