2/29 Webstream: NHSN Training

NHSN has invited us to virtually attend, via webstream, the NHSN training course on “Applying the 2016 Changes to Accurately Report HAI’s,” to be held February 29 and March 1-4, 2016 at the CDC Global Communications Center in Atlanta GA.  This training is intended for infection preventionists and staff from Quality Improvement Organizations, Quality Improvement Networks, Health Engagement Networks, State Health Departments, and others interested in learning more about NHSN surveillance.  Topics will include CMS reporting, definition, and protocol clarification for catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) and central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) C.diff and MRSA events, and Antibiotic Stewardship.  Subject matter experts will provide interactive case studies for each infection/event type.

Live webstreaming begins February 29th at 1:30pmEST.  The speakers agenda and instructions on how to view the webstream are posted at http://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/training/2016training.html .  The sessions will be recorded and archived on the NHSN website for future viewing.  No registration is required for webstream viewing.  Continuing education credit is pending for this activity.
