Managing Infection Prevention During the Construction & Operation of Health Care Facilities
Infection control is the responsibility of every healthcare professional -- even before you break ground on a new facility. On Sunday, this preconference program will bring together the expertise of Steven Cutter from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center; Andrew Streifel from the University of Minnesota and Paula Wright from Massachusetts General Hospital. From the importance of ICRA to how to train your team, this is sure to be time well spent.
Hopefully you’ve already registered for this fascinating session, because it’s sold out!

Improving Infection Prevention Through Facility Design–An Update on the CDC/HRET Project
Because this session sounds just that good, we’ve taken the description directly from ASHE:
In 2015 ASHE was invited to participate in a joint CDC/HRET project to develop materials aimed at improving infection prevention during health care facility planning, design, and construction. This session will describe this project and the materials under development and will illustrate how this information may be used by facility managers, designers, project managers, and clinicians.
