This is a past event.

The Alabama Regional Center for Infection Prevention and Control Training and Technical Assistance presents “Infection Prevention: What is it? Can it really help protect us from pathogens?”

COVID has reminded us how vulnerable the human race is to pathogens. Infectious disease outbreaks and pandemics are not new. They have helped shape how the human race has evolved and how we live in the world. In this webinar, Mary Duncan, Senior Director of Infection Prevention at the University of Alabama-Birmingham Health System, will explain what infection prevention is and how it can help protect us from infectious diseases. She will review the evolution of infection prevention and explore key infection prevention measures that are used every day. Participants will also be able to identify potential trends in infection prevention and how these may help protect us from another pandemic. This webinar is co-sponsored by Alabama Regional Center for Infection Prevention and Control Training and Technical Assistance, the Region IV Public Health Training Center, and the Deep South Center for Occupational Health and Safety.

The Deep South Center for OH&S is an approved provider of continuing education units for nurses by the AL Board of Nursing (Provider ABNP0420 Expiration Date 12/22/2025) and has awarded this program 1.0 contact hours.
