    Reduction of Healthcare Associated Infections by empowering Environmental Services Staff & Using Multi-Modal Strategies to Eliminate Neonatal Sepsis in Banso Baptist Convention

    IP Competency: Novice, Proficient, Expert

    Duration: 60 minutes      Available through: 12/31/2022

    Presentation #1: Reduction of Healthcare Associated Infections by empowering Environmental Services Staff

    To enhance patient safety, healthcare facilities should include environmental services (EVS) education and empowerment. By doing this healthcare facilities will experience a reduction of patient harm from healthcare associated infections that are associated with the environmental surfaces. EVS engagement will be enhanced by adopting high touch surface audits, recognition, and education programs.

    Presentation #2: Using Multi-Modal Strategies to Eliminate Neonatal Sepsis in Banso Baptist Convention

    Neonatal Sepsis is one of the leading causes of neonatal deaths in developing countries, the infections spread most through the hands of health care personnel. Paradoxically, hand hygiene compliance is very low due to several factors including the absence of water and hand washing infrastructure in most setting. Although Alcohol based hand rub (ABR) has been proven to be the most effective strategy to improve hand hygiene, it is lacking in most facilities in developing countries due to cost. Therefore, local production is essential to ensure a steady supply of ABHR.

    The objective of this project was to promote local production and use of ABHR in Cameroon and other African countries. We introduced local production and use of ABHR in Banso Baptist Hospital in 2002, couple with other infection prevention improvement strategies, and later spread the initiative to other facilities of the CBC Health Service. Local production, regular supply and consistent use of ABHR together with other infection prevention strategies lead to elimination of neonatal sepsis in Banso Baptist Hospital (BBH).

  • Onboarding New IPs: A Structured Approach

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/08/2020

    This presentation will focus on the importance and benefits of having a structured and standardized approach for orienting new IPs to their role and to the field of infection prevention. Having formalized new IP orientation checklists helps to ensure each IP has the basic training needed to function independently in their new role.

    IP Competency: Novice, Proficient, Expert

    Duration: 60 minutes      Available through: 12/31/2022

    Description: 

    The field of infection prevention is consistently changing which presents a challenge for novice infection preventionists who are new to the discipline. Although infection control and prevention has evolved over the last 15 years, there are basic practices that every IP must know in order to function effectively in their role. For many novices, infection control and prevention can be an intimidating world to enter into. Many may not have an academic background or prior experience in infection control and prevention and lack formal training. They may be thrust into their role without direction and are still expected to perform at an advanced level. This can be challenging, as many IPs are forced to self-train, create duties and roles, or seek out other avenues for training creating knowledge gaps and ununiformed practices.

    This presentation will focus on the importance and benefits of having a structured and standardized approach for orienting new IPs to their role and to the field of infection prevention. Having formalized new IP orientation checklists helps to ensure each IP has the basic training needed to function independently in their new role. Strategies for organizing and scheduling training sessions will be provided. This presentation will share strategies and approaches from the infection preventionist training program at a multi-facility healthcare system that has been identified as a best practice by regulatory and accreditation bodies.

    Speakers will:

    • Discuss the importance and benefits of having a structured and standardized New IP Orientation.
    • Analyze strategies for organizing and scheduling training sessions.
    • Evaluate the role of IPs and IP Leaders in attaining a successful orientation-training program.

    Group Site License: Registration includes one internet connection and one telephone connection at one location and an unlimited number of participants from your organization in one listening room.
