On-Demand Modules: Foundational Infection Prevention Strategies

The on-demand educational phase is comprised of brief courses that can be viewed at any time and that address both the technical and adaptive elements of infection prevention. Each Foundational Infection Prevention Strategies course is broken into two to four shorter modules to allow teams and hospitals to tailor their education based on gaps highlighted by their ICAR and/or Practice Change Assessment (PCA) results. These smaller modules may be appropriate to use for new employee or annual staff infection prevention training. The Foundational Infection Prevention Strategies modules are designed to address practices that apply to all types of infections.

On-Demand Modules: Preventing HAIs

STRIVE participants have access to HAI-specific educational modules on HAI-specific education on Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia, central line-associated blood stream infection (CLABSI) and catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). Hospitals will choose which HAIs to focus on based on their HAI rates.

Learning Action Forum Webinars

Monthly Learning Action Forums are an opportunity for hospital teams to learn from one another and from national infection prevention experts.

HAI Guides to Patient Safety

The Guides to Patient Safety are brief, realistic assessments to identify reasons why a hospital or unit may have persistent challenges in preventing health care-associated infections.
