This “on-demand” program is specifically targeted to infection preventionist nurses, however all who have a leadership role in infection prevention in a long term care setting will benefit. Infection Preventionists, Directors of Nursing, Assistant Directors of Nursing, Directors of Staff Development and more will have the opportunity to learn directly from an important leader in the field of infection prevention in long term care setting, Dolly Greene, RN, BSN, CIC. The CALTCM Infection Preventionist Orientation Program provides all the foundational information an Infection Preventionist needs to get started in their role through four (4) training modules.

  • Module 4 – Infection Preventionist Resources and Tools (25 min)

The modules can be completed independently by the Infection Preventionist or viewed in conjunction with a supervisor to supplement other orientation activities.

The “on-demand” education can be played at any time and all resource materials are available for download or printed use. The full program must be completed within 30 days from start of program.
