An Infection Prevention and Control Training Collaborative
Project Firstline, CDC’s national training collaborative for infection prevention and control, is committed to preparing front-line health care workers and the public health workforce to protect themselves, their patients and their communities from infectious disease threats.
ASHE is pleased to contribute to this critical education and training opportunity and offer resources aimed at optimizing environments of care. Resources cover critical needs, such as ventilation and negative pressure rooms, to support to assist health care workers on both the environment side and clinical side; specifically clinicians, health care facilities managers and outside contractors and technicians.
The actions you take on how to construct and maintain a safe environment and keep key airflow components intact can make a difference in containing an outbreak and mitigating risks.
