    This session outlines the change management steps of a hospital system’s journey to centralized surveillance. Actions taken to address potential obstacles will be presented, along with development of standard work, transparency, conflict resolution, and efficient data feedback to hospital IP programs.

    Is your organization considering centralized surveillance for healthcare associated infections? The transfer of surveillance duties from hospital based Infection Preventionists to a centralized team of surveillance experts is a journey that may include obstacles such as unwillingness to give up the task, uncertainty of surveillance team expertise, and difficulties in developing the right team with the best fitting team members. The endeavor can be successful with a well thought out plan that includes concepts of change management and the steps of creating a vision, identifying stakeholders, quantifying time, and selling the concept to gain acceptance. This session outlines the change management steps of a hospital system’s journey to centralized surveillance. Actions taken to address potential obstacles will be presented, along with development of standard work, transparency, conflict resolution, and efficient data feedback to hospital IP programs.

    The COVID pandemic, healthcare outbreaks and concern for antibiotic resistant organisms, highlight the importance of public health and healthcare facilities collaborating effectively to protect patients and prevent harms related to healthcare-associated Infections (HAIs) and antimicrobial-resistant pathogens (AR). The Council for Outbreak Response: Healthcare-Associated Infections and Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens (COHRA): works to improve practices and policies at the local, state, and national levels for the detection, investigation, reporting, control, and prevention of HAI/AR outbreaks across the healthcare continuum. Two infection preventionists (IP) will highlight their role on CORHA and the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration in the prevention and control of HAI/AR outbreaks... As council members, Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) representatives bring expertise in infection prevention, environmental factors, and HAI/AR reporting. Examples of the collaborative work will be presented including the role of APIC members in advancing the crucial role of front -line IPs working collaboratively with their public health colleagues, as well as mechanisms to improve and communicate this crucial role.

    This session will address the most common barriers to recruiting and hiring qualified IPs and offer effective and innovative solutions for filling vacant positions.

    CE: 1 / IPU: 1

    Jennifer Vogelsberg BS, MLS (ASCP), CIC

    Many Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) departments struggle to recruit and hire qualified Infection Preventionists (IPs). Recent global epidemics, heightened attention to device-associated infections, and increasing regulatory requirements highlight the complexity and necessity of the IP role. The role of the IP is one that requires highly specified skills, clinical experience, and robust critical thinking, making the qualified candidate hard to find. This session will address the most common barriers to recruiting and hiring qualified IPs and offer effective and innovative solutions for filling vacant positions. The speakers will discuss ways to diversify and expand the IPC department, strategies for identifying how other professions can support the IPC program, ideas on how to partner with Human Resources to aid in recruitment, and approaches to build excitement for the IP role.

    The proposed presentation will present the development process and implementation of electronic healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) review (deep dive) tools.

    This proposal surrounds the optimization of data management through electronic methods. The proposed presentation will present the development process and implementation of electronic healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) review (deep dive) tools. Through the development of these tools, our multi-hospital organization has been able to streamline the HAI investigation process and quickly identify organizational trends and opportunities for improvement in our prevention efforts. We will share the two-year journey of this process with the lessons learned and the currently developed electronic investigation tools, and our strategy for maintaining a single repository. We will also discuss how we present our HAI trends across the system for individual facility and organizational events maintained in real-time. This process has significantly increased facility and corporate awareness of HAI events and improved the engagement and buy-in in supporting prevention efforts. The targeted audience is infection prevention teams looking to strengthen participation across their organization with the HAI review process and save time in tracking and reporting trends. Additionally, this process has significantly increased multidisciplinary engagement in infection prevention.

    facility's overall performance is influenced partially by whether any of three different vaccinations were provided to residents. These three vaccinations are a few of several independent quality indicators on which a facility's star rating is based.

    Long term care leaders struggle with low reimbursement and excessive regulatory demand. One such regulation is the administration of vaccinations. A facility's overall performance is influenced partially by whether any of three different vaccinations were provided to residents. These three vaccinations are a few of several independent quality indicators on which a facility's star rating is based. With the infection preventionist coordinating the vaccination process in collaboration with individual nurse managers, our facility has been able to simultaneously improve quality scores, protect our residents, and capture all potential revenues. In turn our infection prevention program is revenue generating.

    All levels of infection preventionists will benefit from our creative approach to infection prevention education, including ambulatory, home health, long-term care, and inpatient arenas

    CE: 1 / IPU: 1

    Post Covid culture between frontline staff and Infection Preventionists needs an enema. An infusion of caregivers trained and entered the workforce during the pandemic, missing out on critical kinesthetic practice and whose primary clinical experience was lacking. Elevating back to basics by infusing creative tactics, infection preventionists can upskill these caregivers and improve patient outcomes. Presentations built on a foundation of slide decks and rote lecturing are no longer the norm and just-in-time reminders may fall on multitasking, unfocused ears. Adult education is improved, reaching more of the audience, by crossing all levels of instruction. When we reimagine activities that engage and promote compliance with Infection Prevention practices, stickiness ensues. Using multimodal stations to teach infection preventionists, we will demonstrate how to develop fun, new ways to practice safe patient care. We will incorporate visual, auditory, tactile, and kinesthetic learning and infuse interpersonal, interactive, and developmentally appropriate coaching, as well as how to use assimilation dialogue considering diversity of staff’s individual language preferences, culture, and cognitive perspectives. Examples of such include tackling microbial contamination using simulated ultraviolet gel and blacklight for patient care techniques. These can demonstrate consequences of poor patient care practices like cleaning patients and the environment, device insertion, precise culturing, water splashes, and hand hygiene. Storytelling practice will impart the importance of changing the front-line staff member’s external locus of control to an internal locus of control of patient care. Developing competitions, applying child life techniques to improve engagement, and using positive reinforcement are other elements to be presented. Each of the elements is portable, not classroom setting based, which will aid in bringing the education to the teams. All levels of infection preventionists will benefit from our creative approach to infection prevention education, including ambulatory, home health, long-term care, and inpatient arenas
