Although infection control and prevention has evolved over the last 15 years, there are basic practices that every IP must know in order to function effectively in their role. For many novices, infection control and prevention can be an intimidating world to enter into. Many may not have an academic background or prior experience in infection control and prevention and lack formal training. They may be thrust into their role without direction and are still expected to perform at an advanced level. This can be challenging, as many IPs are forced to self-train, create duties and roles, or seek out other avenues for training creating knowledge gaps and ununiformed practices.This presentation will focus on the importance and benefits of having a structured and standardized approach for orienting new IPs to their role and to the field of infection prevention. Having formalized new IP orientation checklists helps to ensure each IP has the basic training needed to function independently in their new role. Strategies for organizing and scheduling training sessions will be provided. This presentation will share strategies and approaches from the infection preventionist training program at a multi-facility healthcare system that has been identified as a best practice by regulatory and accreditation bodies.Speakers will:Discuss the importance and benefits of having a structured and standardized New IP Orientation.Analyze strategies for organizing and scheduling training sessions.Evaluate the role of IPs and IP Leaders in attaining a successful orientation-training program.False/images/Products/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000_190256.PNG

 Understanding the Low-level Disinfection IFUWB-190417500.000.00WEBINARSThousands of equipment/devices exist across the health care continuum which require low level disinfection (LLD). For each equipment/device there is a unique IFU, which may include cleaning instructions, as well a description of how to then perform disinfection. In the fast paced healthcare setting, it is impossible for a healthcare worker to remember all of these instructions, and equally impossible for a healthcare system to adequately support a unique cleaning method for each piece of equipment. This webinar provides insight to the infection preventionists looking for an answer to “How can I clean all of the equipment in my institution, safely and still pass an inspection”.Learning Objectives:Participants will understand the IFU as it relates to cleaning and how this applies to equipment that requires low level disinfection.Participants will understand the science behind cleaning, why IFUs don’t always make sense.Participants will learn how partnering with your key stakeholders can help ensure safe and reliable cleaning practices in low level disinfection.Participant will understand essential components needed in a risk assessment for high reliability in low level disinfection.False 
 2018 Heroes of APIC: ThirdWB-190403500.000.00WEBINARSPresentation #1: Process Improvements and Culture Change Drive C. diff DecreaseThe Infection Prevention and Quality departments at MountainView Hospital combined evidence-based process improvements with an emphasis on front-line collaboration to significantly enhance safety for their patients.In early 2015, the team “de-engineered” the healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) their facility was reporting to identify specific improvement opportunities. Leveraging their varied medical technology, quality, and nursing backgrounds, Harsha Dave, Jan Olivas, and Lisa Schaffer then created processes to reduce HAIs across the board, with an emphasis on Clostridium difficile (C. diff).Using evidence-based guidelines, the team developed a C. diff testing algorithm designed to prevent unnecessary and duplicative C. diff testing. The algorithm was disseminated to all healthcare workers in the facility and medical staff leadership support for the project and appropriate testing was clear. The appropriateness of C. diff testing at MountainView has greatly improved and the facility’s C. diff rate dropped from 1.78 standardized infection ratio (SIR) in 2015 to 0.56 in mid-2016.Presentation #2: Improving Antimicrobial Stewardship Nationwide Through Untiring LeadershipMarc Meyer has tirelessly leveraged his infection prevention and pharmacy expertise to become a recognized leader and advocate for antimicrobial stewardship (AMS), driving improvements in his small critical-access facility, his community and nationwide.A pharmacist by training, Meyer assumed responsibility for his 25-bed hospital’s infection control department in 1995. “I saw an ideal marriage between clinical pharmacy and infection prevention,” Meyer said. “These departments really need to work together, especially in small hospitals.” Southwest Memorial credits Meyer and his department for a 60 percent decline in surgical site infections and a 30 percent decline in multi-drug resistant organisms.But Meyer knew that hospital-based efforts alone would not preserve antimicrobial efficacy. As a member of the Colorado Hospital Association’s AMS collaborative, he works with 26 hospitals statewide to improve stewardship. Extending his advocacy and leadership even further, Meyer has helped the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Quality Forum develop ASM guidance documents.imageBD is pleased to support the APIC Heroes of Infection Prevention Program and the outstanding and essential work of the Heroes honorees in the field of infection prevention.False 
 Targeting Zero Infections in Hemodialysis PatientsWB-190314500.000.00WEBINARSInfections among patients receiving hemodialysis continue to be major causes of morbidity and mortality despite recent advances in the science of infection prevention. Many infections are potentially preventable if caregivers adhere to proven best practices. Yet research suggests that many evidence-based interventions are not uniformly practiced in dialysis settings. This webinar will review the challenge of infection for dialysis patients and discuss proven best practices to prevent infections in dialysis facilities. We will demonstrate how engaged staff, partnering with an infection preventionist, can deliver high quality care according to industry best practice in the complex hemodialysis setting, help ensure regulatory adherence and promote optimal patient safety. Specifically, this webinar will provide attendees with tools and resources to help improve infection prevention practices of dialysis staff, including an overview of the CDC Core Elements to reduce BSI in dialysis patients, and available tools such as checklists and audit forms which can be used to assess current practice and inform quality improvement.Learning Objectives:Understand the mortality and morbidity of infections for hemodialysis patientsDescribe the evidence-based policies and procedures that reduce infections in hemodialysis patientsDescribe an algorithm of blood sampling on hemodialysis to minimize contaminationUnderstand an algorithm of hepatitis C screening for hemodialysis patientsDescribe how the hemodialysis program can impact the organization’s healthcare-associated infection ratesIdentify interventions that the infection preventionist can implement to reduce the risk of infectionFalse 
 2018 Heroes of APIC: FirstWB-190213500.000.00WEBINARSPresentation #1: Engaging Multi-Disciplinary Expertise to Generate Sustained ImprovementsBy fully leveraging expertise from multiple departments, the infection prevention team at Excela Health effectively tackled rising Clostridium difficile (C. diff) rates at their three-hospital system.When a steadily rising C. diff infection (CDI) rate led Excela Health leadership to establish an internal target for reducing or eliminating the infection, the infection prevention team welcomed the creation of an interprofessional team to help improve patient safety. The system’s continuous improvement team leveraged LEAN methodology to bring everyone together and achieve their goals. “We knew we needed a broad range of expertise to achieve our goals and the LEAN facilitator really helped us stay on track,” Deborah Schotting said. Excela Health’s CDI LEAN team created a comprehensive campaign focused on early identification and prevention of C. diff infections through appropriate testing, physician education, isolation/safety zone precautions, antibiotic stewardship, environmental cleaning, and staff and patient awareness. In addition to participation from nursing, pharmacy, laboratory, and environmental services departments, the Excela Health marketing and communications department created instrumental tools, team members educated nurses about documentation and process, and the system librarian identified key evidence-based resources. In just over two years, the system achieved a 43.8 percent reduction in healthcare-associated C. diff infections.Presentation #2: Collaboration and Creativity Generate Dramatic CAUTI ReductionThe Infection Prevention and Control Team at University of Louisville Hospital developed a program emphasizing continual education, awareness, collaboration, and fun to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) at their facility.The team had made some progress in CAUTI prevention, but “we really wanted to hit a tipping point that would enable us to sustain progress,” Sarah Bishop said. This desire led to a facility-wide 2017 CAUTI-reduction goal. The team created a multi-dimensional campaign comprising quality improvement, education initiatives, and creativity to promote reduction of indwelling urinary catheter usage and increase adherence to a nurse-driven removal protocol.Throughout the campaign, the team emphasized collaboration and relationship-building across departments. Ultimately, the team’s creativity and passion generated a 34 percent decrease in CAUTI. Continual education, including through nursing orientation and preceptorships, is helping to ensure they’ve reached their “tipping point.”imageBD is pleased to support the APIC Heroes of Infection Prevention Program and the outstanding and essential work of the Heroes honorees in the field of infection prevention.False 
 Peripheral IV BSIsWB-181025500.000.00WEBINARSEvery IP understands the importance and high priority of good patient outcomes and works to track and guide interventions that supports this priority. One outcome that we may be overlooking is Peripheral IV (PIV) bloodstream infection (BSI).Peripheral IV catheterization (PIC) is the most common invasive procedure performed on hospitalized patients. PIV insertion and maintenance provides a potential risk for a number of safety incidents, including microbial growth in the bloodstream, infiltration, leakage, catheter obstruction and phlebitis. This webinar will attempt to provide data on the prevalence of PIV BSI and definitions used identify them. Since most IPs are not vascular access specialists by background, we would like to provide education around the nuances of vasculature, guidance from vascular experts and potential bundles and education that can assist in decreasing our patient's risk for PIV BSI. Finally, we would like to explore patient advocacy and the potential voice IPs are going to have in the future of PIV BSI.Learning Objectives:Discuss data on the prevalence of PIV BSI and definitions used identify themDescribe at least one concept around knowledge of vascular preservation in patientsIdentify at least two ways to assist in decreasing our patient's risk for PIV BSIExplore the potential voice IPs are going to have in the future of PIV BSIFalse

 Outbreaks on Behavioral Health UnitsWB-161109500.000.00WEBINARSPatients with mental health issues may be at increased potential for infection and communicable diseases due to impaired judgment, poor medication compliance, substance abuse, homelessness, lack of personal hygiene, and poor nutrition. Those with severe illness may require acute care hospitalization for intensive treatment and stability. This poses a risk of transmission, and the potential for an outbreak, impacting both other patients and health care personnel on the behavioral health unit. Acute care recommendations to curtail an outbreak with traditional interventions such as increased hand hygiene, isolation precautions, and vaccination may be challenging on a milieu, where the patients have complex psychosocial needs and altered sensoriums. This can result with the patient declining healthy, therapeutic infection prevention activities, thus intensifying pathogen transmission. Outbreaks can arise and may not be recognized, resulting with additional cross-infection. Additionally, there may be limited diagnostic and treatment capabilities in some facilities. This presentation will discuss and explore outbreaks in behavioral health settings. The infection pathogenesis, transmission, management, sequela, and preventive strategies will be highlighted. Lessons learned and proactive strategies focusing on evidenced-based interventions to prevent future occurrences will be reviewed. The participant will obtain additional knowledge with bolstering their infection prevention program on their behavioral health units.Learning Objectives:Identify one reason why an outbreak may go undetected in a behavioral health setting State two evidenced based best practices to prevent outbreaks.

 The challenges of disinfecting porous and nonporous surfacesWB-151119500.000.00WEBINARSDespite extensive education and controls in hand hygiene, patient isolation, and surface disinfection, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) HAIs are the third leading cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancer. Learn about potentially overlooked niche environments for pathogen survival and transmission and the challenges associated with cleaning a wide range of surfaces in the healthcare environment in this presentation. New information will be shared that evaluates disinfectant efficacy and compatibility with various surfaces to help you develop an evidence-based Approach for more effective cleaning protocols.An estimated 20% to 40% of HAIs have been attributed to cross-contamination via the hands of healthcare personnel who have become contaminated either from direct contact with patients or indirectly by touching contaminated environmental surfaces. Numerous studies have shown that both soft and hard surfaces contribute to the harboring and transmission of pathogens throughout healthcare environments. Recently, studies have shown that pathogens readily travel from a single contaminated site to multiple surfaces throughout a facility in a cycle of continuous contamination and recontamination.In one study, microbial tracers traveled from a contaminated nurse's station to 64% (25/39) of surfaces throughout the facility within four hours. Surfaces in the healthcare environment are constructed of mixed (porous and nonporous) textiles, requiring different infection control practices. Changes in surface integrity, caused by typical cleaning and disinfection practices, along with normal use, can create unseen niches for microbes to persist and be protected from contact with cleaning and disinfecting agents. Awareness of the complexity of surfaces in healthcare settings is increasing, and infection preventionists looking for best practices and guidance for reducing healthcare-associated infections and improving patient outcomes will benefit from this webinar.Learning Objectives:Understand pathogen movement and persistence in healthcare environments Develop improved cleaning protocols for mixed textile environments Identify surfaces of increased concern for pathogen survival and transmission False

 Establishing a Working Relationship with AnesthesiologyWB-140430500.000.00WEBINARSTraditionally, infection prevention (IP) efforts in the operating room (OR) have focused on nursing and surgical staff. However, a strong partnership with anesthesiology is also crucial to IP efforts in the OR. Our department has spent several years establishing a working relationship with anesthesiology. Our initial focus was on best practices for techniques used in the OR, such as sterile technique for central line insertion and proper care of invasive devices. We use several venues to share information, including a yearly education program for all staff, and monthly education programs for new staff. These in-person sessions allow anesthesia personnel to ask clarifying questions, and work through situations where it is difficult to comply with recommended best practices. Monthly educational articles are shared through an anesthesiology newsletter. These short summaries allow one area of concern to be highlighted each month, helping to maintain the focus on IP-related issues throughout the year. IPs complete OR observations several times each month, and anesthesia personnel are specifically observed performing central line insertion, Foley catheter maintenance, and hand hygiene. To promote transparency and foster a collegial relationship, IP has implemented real-time feedback to the anesthesia personnel about deficiencies. Monthly summaries of compliance are given to anesthesiology administration, and areas of concern are discussed. These processes have contributed to steady increases in compliance with best practices. The credibility our department has built with anesthesiology has allowed us to tackle some more challenging topics. Recently, we have been working toward increasing compliance with contact isolation both in and outside of the OR, as well as discussing appropriate technique for transport of patients between the OR and holding or other areas of the hospital. Overall, our continued efforts have resulted in a better relationship, which leads to better care for our patients.Learning Objectives:Utilize ideas offered to increase focused education to anesthesia personnelUse the anesthesia section of the OR observation tool presented as a templateBuild the basis of a working relationship with anesthesia providers in their institutionFalse 
 Research and Practice in Long Term CareWB-130515500.000.00WEBINARSInconsistencies in implementation of evidence-based infection control best practices, and the number of deficiencies for infection control problems in long term care facilities, indicate the need for increased emphasis on identifying barriers to development of a structured framework to integrate infection control strategies into clinical practice. The presenter will demonstrate the utilization of an innovative model designed to enhance nursing homes' success with incorporating infection control best-practices into clinical practice by exploring areas of greatest challenge and assessing patterns of care that could be targeted for improvement. A component of the model, a unique best practice assessment tool will be illustrated.This tool specifically measures in which infection prevention domains nursing homes perform either well or poorly, in which implementation categories there are differences in facility performance, and which elements of best practice are most lacking in areas of poor performance. Pennsylvania's experience with utilizing this model to study the impact of various levels of implementation of infection prevention practices on infection rates in nursing homes, and to successfully drive infection reduction in nursing homes with high infection rates, will be highlighted. The presenter will describe use of this model as a powerful device to justify or prioritize implementation of appropriate prevention strategies and resources, and to gain a fresh perspective on the effectiveness of improvement strategies needed to enhance the infection control program.Learning Objectives:Utilize multifocal methods of assessment to measure integration of best practices into infection control program and structure.Detect opportunities for improvement to implementing infection control best practices at leadership, physician, clinical and support staff levels.Translate assessment results into a structured framework to incorporate infection control strategies into clinical practice.False
