Integration enables dramatic infection reductionKelley Boston, MPH, CIC, CPHQ
Infection Prevention & Management Associates, Inc., and Memorial Hermann Health System
The skills required for infection prevention and safe delivery of care are not simple. One of the roles of the infection preventionists is to help colleagues change processes and change behavior, but many of us struggle with effectively coaching frontline healthcare workers to improve performance. Infection Prevention leaders are also challenged to train and mentor early career infection preventionists. This session will share strategies for providing effective feedback to others to improve performance.
Reducing CAUTI through championing a patient safety cultureChaz Rhone, MPH, CIC
Infection Preventionist, Tampa General Hospital
The presentation will highlight the journey that Tampa General Hospital is on to reach zero CAUTI across the facility. While there will be mention of many technical interventions, each was done with the intent of making a lasting cultural impact to sustain the interventions as highlighted in the Agency for Healthcare Research Quality Toolkit for Reducing Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in Hospital Units: Implementation Guide. The target audience is any person involved with infection prevention, patient safety, or quality initiatives.
