This certificate track continues to build upon the success of the SHEA training course held during previous SHEA meetings which is a great opportunity for Fellows and Infection Preventionists to take a deep dive into this specialty.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the process of surveillance for healthcare-associated infections and how to apply surveillance techniques and methods.
  • Define modes of transmission and approaches to prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial-resistant pathogens, as well as other emerging infections in the healthcare setting.
  • Understand the roles that the environment, cleaning, disinfection, and sterilization play in the cycle of transmission of infections to patients.
  • Identify how infection prevention activities align with the disciplines of Healthcare Quality and Safety.
  • Apply and define outbreak investigation techniques and evidence-based infection prevention strategies.
  • Evaluate the unique approaches to infection prevention among special populations.
  • Describe the role of leadership and clinical education in infection prevention efforts.
  • Gain a working knowledge of the role of the healthcare epidemiologist in antimicrobial stewardship, occupational health, epidemiology research, the microbiology laboratory, and emergency preparedness.
