After the October 2014 outbreak of Ebola in the U.S. led to several life-threatening cases in U.S. hospitals, it became apparent that many healthcare workers don't follow proper protocol, either because they didn't realize the risks or weren't properly trained. Too often healthcare organizations find themselves unprepared for a hazardous situation or patient. It is in these tense moments that proper PPE training is put to use to protect staff and patients while minimizing risk.


Join expert speakers Kevin Bussiere, RN-CIC and Marjorie Quint-Bouzid, MPA, RN, NEA-BC, for a special live program, “PPE in Healthcare: How to Improve Culture, Consistency and Compliance,” on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 from 1–2:30 p.m. ET

During this program, our experts will clarify confusing PPE situations as well as explain when and how to properly implement PPE best practices, and how to implement an effective worker training program. Bussiere and Quint-Bouzid will demonstrate the role of technology, risk assessment, and PPE needs for their staff, as well as how to use peer support to improve compliance.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

 

•    Demonstrate understanding the role of technology, research and development, and regulations on healthcare PPE advancements
•    Identify different types of PPE and when their use is most appropriate for worker safety
•    Use a risk assessment to determine how to identify categories of staff and their PPE needs
•    Demonstrate how to use peer support to improve worker compliance

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear practical advice and ensure your staff is protected through awareness and training on an organization-wide level, in a program suitable for your whole facility.
