Education for Prevention of Healthcare Associated Infections
The Joint Commission requires education of all staff and licensed independent practitioners about healthcare-associated infections, multidrug-resistant organisms and prevention strategies upon hiring and annually thereafter.
In order to meet this requirement, the System created an educational module for physicians, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants. The tool was reviewed and discussed at the Medical Executive Committee on December 16, 2009.
