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 fifth webinar in the Empowering Nurses to Protect Themselves and Their Patients series. The webinar titled, “Exploring Best Practices in Injection Safety,” will feature the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, the American Nephrology Nurses Association, and the Infusion Nurses Society.
Nurses’ role in adhering to injection safety best practices is critical to patient safety and healthcare personnel safety. Injection safety includes practices intended to prevent transmission of infectious disease between one patient and another, or between a patient and healthcare provider, and also to prevent harms such as needlestick injuries. This webinar will describe the essential balance between meeting immediate or emergent patient safety needs and performing all recommended infection control practices during clinical care. This webinar will also identify safe injection practices intended to prevent catheter-related bloodstream infections and describe injection practices in a hemodialysis facility that would potentiate a patient’s risk for infection.
