Save the Date – Sept. 4 and 5: Effectiveness & Core Components for Infection Preventionist Certificate Program

The final countdown to Phase 3 of the Requirements of Participation that take effect Nov. 28 has begun. These requirements, among other changes, mandate that every care center have a designated and specially trained Infection Preventionist running a comprehensive infection prevention and control program. Are you prepared? 

Save the date for the LeadingAge Minnesota Infection Preventionist Certificate Program on Sept. 4 and 5. This comprehensive, interactive two day in-person training session and webinars will help you understand key strategies on building a sustainable and robust infection prevention and control program in your setting. The training will:

  • Review key proposed changes to Infection Control requirements, including designation of an Infection Preventionist
  • Identify the relationship between infection prevention and an overarching quality assessment, performance improvement (QAPI) approach
  • Offer creative tools and resources for training employees
  • Provide engagement opportunities in real-world problem solving with peers 

Our comprehensive training is designed for individuals who are responsible for the infection prevention and control program in care centers and their back-ups. We recommend that each care center train at least two Infection Preventionists, so if one leaves your organization you will still be in compliance with the requirement to have at least one designated and specially trained Infection Preventionist that meets the Requirements of Participation for this mandatory role.
