Do No Harm: What You Can Do to Keep Your Patients Safe
We are pleased to announce a co-provided presentation from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Institute for Medical Quality/California Medical Association: “Do No Harm: What you can do to keep your patients safe.” Given the critical need to ensure patient safety and reduce healthcare-associated infections, it is more important than ever for healthcare workers to carefully adhere to infection prevention principles. The presentation is a two-part series; the first, “Infection Prevention Basics,” is intended to instruct healthcare personnel in outpatient settings on the fundamentals of patient safety and infection prevention. The second part, “Building an Infection Prevention Program,” will assist facility directors and administrators in incorporating the essential elements of an infection control program into their outpatient setting.
The specific learning objectives of the presentation are:
• Understand the importance of infection control in patient safety
• Characterize the role of the healthcare worker in infection transmission
• Utilize recommended infection control practices
• Apply essential elements of an infection control program in outpatient settings
