3/26 NHSN News

The NHSN September Newsletter (https://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/pdfs/newsletters/nhsn-nl-sep19-508.pdf) has no dialysis-specific bulletins, but the section for all users includes articles on the online NHSN Educational Roadmaps such as https://www.cdc.gov/nhsn/training/roadmap/dialysis-roadmap.html, and on page 16 important changes coming in January 2020’s NHSN Release 9.4 to the CDA protocols for automating data uploads to NHSN.

The Newsletter also announces that the usual NHSN Patient Safety Annual Training will not take place in 2020 because they are deferring to the 6th International Conference on Healthcare Associated Infections, cohosted by CDC and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.  This Conference, which is held only every ten years, will take place March 26-30, 2019 in Atlanta GA, with the theme Global Solutions to Antibiotic Resistance in Healthcare.  See https://decennial2020.org/ for more information.
