Free Continuing Education Opportunity in Infection Prevention and Control

On May 15, 2018, the Nursing Infection Control Education Network (NICE Network), which seeks to empower nurses to protect themselves and their patients by providing real-time infection prevention and control training to U.S. nurses, will host the seventh webinar in the Empowering Nurses to Protect Themselves and Their Patients series. The webinar titled, A Discussion of Current Infection Prevention and Control Challenges in Maternal and Child Health Settings, will feature the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses.

Nurses use their skills and expertise to help provide safe care and treatment to patients. Adherence to infection prevention and control recommendations is critical to prevent occupational exposures and the cross-transmission of pathogens in healthcare settings. This webinar will discuss infection prevention practices and challenges in women’s health, obstetrics, and pediatrics, the importance of standard precautions, and practical solutions and ways to implement infection prevention in these specialty environments.
