Call for Resources: Infection Prevention and Control Materials Developed by Local Health Departments for Training Frontline Healthcare and Public Health Workforce

Feb 18, 2021

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is gathering infection prevention and control (IPC) materials and training resources developed by local health departments. This information will serve as the foundation for NACCHO’s work with Project Firstline, including development of a toolkit, training curricula, and resource library.

Your participation will enable us to equip the public health and healthcare workforce with training to implement sustainable IPC protocols and combat infectious disease threats across this nation. To that end, NACCHO is requesting feedback from local health departments who have developed both general IPC and COVID-19 specific IPC materials. We strongly encourage local health departments who serve communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19 (i.e. rural settings, nursing homes, long term care facilities, etc.) to share any tools, resources, examples/pilots, or lessons learned.

Priority IPC training needs include but are not limited to:

  • PPE (i.e., basics, donning/doffing, shortage/crisis capacity)
  • Environmental cleaning and disinfection (i.e., recommended products, contact time adherence)
  • Infectious Disease Transmission
  • Cultural Competency
  • Health Equity
  • Outbreak identification, prevention, and/or response in congregate settings
  • Conducting infection control assessment visits (i.e. ICARs, etc.)
  • Facilitating data reporting
  • Building partnerships and/or IPC coalitions with a variety of settings where IPC support may be needed (i.e. healthcare facilities, schools, correctional facilities, congregate care settings)
  • Tailoring materials for partners in their jurisdiction
  • Infection risks associated with therapeutic and diagnostic procedures and devices

***We welcome materials on local IPC priorities that are not listed above. Examples of resources being collected include training materials, checklists, signage templates, modified ICAR tools, etc.

Please submit materials and any questions by Friday, March 5th to [email protected].
