One of the most important aspects of a good infection prevention system is infection control education. It's not enough to simply create and implement a prevention plan. You need to ensure that every person involved in patient care thoroughly understands the goals and the processes associated with this system. What's more, you need a flexible method for continuing infection control education that you can quickly put into place when protocols change, new services are added, and/or new health threats arise.
At Infection Control Results we will create an educational course based on your facility’s specific needs. This course will include handouts and speaker’s notes, as well as any digital tools you may need. Once your infection control educational course is developed, we will work with your infection preventionist or education specialist to help them provide the education your staff and providers need. We are also available to provide interactive education at your facility, such as during lunch hours or during an evening shift. We are also happy to offer a webinar so that staff members can learn at their own pace and on their own schedule.
Just a few examples of courses we've recently created for clients include infection control educational programs on bloodborne pathogens, infection prevention orientation for new employees and courses on the prevention of device-related infections, multiple drug resistant organism infection, clostridium difficile (c diff) infection and surgical site infections. We can also develop infection control education for a specific group of personnel such as medical residents, physicians, or ultrasound staff, or ultrasound staff to ensure optimal patient safety.
We offer staff education for hand hygiene best practices, sharps safety, infection practices, and sterilization/high-level disinfection including:

Through over 20 years of experience, our team has tailored infection control training for countless healthcare personnel to ensure effective education in preventing exposure and creating safer healthcare facilities. We prepare your facility or practice for emerging threats and improve adherence through personalized training programs for infection prevention and control. Whether it is protocols for hand hygiene, waste management, occupational safety, potentially infectious materials, or general disease control and prevention — we can help create easy-to-follow infection control procedures for your healthcare settings.
We've spent decades helping healthcare workers improve infection prevention and reduce emerging infectious diseases from spreading. Our education and training programs are designed specifically for infection prevention and control. Our comprehensive education solutions offer unmatched resources for healthcare personnel to ensure patient safety throughout your entire facility.
A good infection prevention education plan doesn't just help your facility meet your accreditation requirements. It helps to save lives. According to the CDC, a good infection prevention plan (with continuing infection control education) can help reduce patient deaths from healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) by more than 70 percent. In environments where easily transmitted diseases and pathogens can cling to medical devices and even staff, we provide comprehensive education and training programs for disease control and prevention that are focused on your unique practice.
From appropriate personal protective equipment and hand hygiene best practices to orientation for new employees and robust guidelines for infection prevention and control, ICR offers decades of experience in education.
