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 and are intended to be viewed by:

  • Environmental services staff
  • Hospital leadership
  • Infection prevention teams
  • Medical staff
  • Nursing staff
  • Pharmacists

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.

Tiered Interventions to Prevent HAIs

Download summaries of evidence-based practices and resources to prevent HAIs.

Practices are categorized as Tier 1 or Tier 2. All Tier 1 practices should be implemented in every unit. Implement Tier 2 practices in the event of persistently elevated infection rates after using the Guides to Patient Safety.


Using the CDC's TAP Strategy to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections: Running and Understanding TAP Reports

Watch this webinar to learn about CDC's Targeted Assessment for Prevention (TAP) strategy and how individual hospitals and group users can run TAP reports in the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) and use these results to guide infection prevention efforts.

More information about the TAP strategy, TAP User's Guides, and infection specific assessments and implementation guides can be found on the CDC's TAP website: https://www.cdc.gov/hai/prevent/tap.html. If at any point you have questions about running or interpreting TAP reports, please feel free to reach out to our wonderful partners at the CDC.
