This workshop is designed to expand the knowledge of the Infection Preventionist and support staff beyond basic control and prevention. The overall goal of a specialized training that will equip center with the tools needed to participate in surveillance, learn and use infection control and containment practices, and adopt a proactive approach to preventing spread while being good stewards of antibiotics to preserve effectiveness of the agents we have today. 

The specialized training will drill deep, with standard and transmission-based precautions, including the circumstances in which isolation should be used for residents or staff. The Infection Preventionist's role will be fully explored, with a review of the specialist's qualifications and scope of practice.
