Attendees will hear:
What is required for an effective IPC program;
IPC training requirements related to pathogens, resident cohorting, and contact tracing;
IPC surveillance, investigation, data collection and reporting recommendations designed to help review processes, efficiency, and evaluate outcomes;
Coping strategies to deal with resident, family and staff member stress; and
Pandemic planning tools to better prepare communities for future outbreaks.
