Webinar: Regional Approach to Infection Prevention and Control of COVID-19

Jun 08, 2021 | Beth Hess

COVID-19 continues highlighting the critical role of infection prevention and control (IPC) in healthcare settings. In this webinar on Thursday, June 24, 3:00-4:00 pm ET, two local health departments, Pima County (AZ) and Hamilton County (OH), will discuss their efforts to build a regional approach to IPC and share lessons learned and successes.

Pima County will discuss needs of the border region, the regional partnerships they developed, and future directions for IPC in various congregate settings in the border region. Hamilton County will review its multi-pronged approach to improving IPC education, including how it kept staff informed of changes in best practices and how it collaborated with stakeholders, such as The Health Collaborative, Infection Preventionists in local hospitals, and Regional Epidemiologist and Disease Investigators. Hamilton County will also discuss the abundance of resources it created that have been shared regionally.

Pima and Hamilton counties are two of the 25 local health departments NACCHO funded to enhance local capacity to prevent and respond to COVID-19 through its Building Local Operational Capacity for COVID-19 (BLOC COVID-19) Demonstration Site Project. Local health departments participating in the project achieve this goal by supporting high-risk facilities to conduct in-person or virtual IPC assessments and expanding collaboration and coordination between local health departments and community infection prevention partners.

This webinar is open to all members of local health departments as well as other community partners who are interested in this topic. Only registered participants will be able to join. Register here
