AHA and CDC release Project Firstline COVID-19 Training for Health Care Workers

In partnership with the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Center for Health Innovation and other national health care organizations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  (CDC)  launched Project Firstline, a national training collaborative to help every health care worker understand and adhere to recommended infection control practices to respond to COVID-19 and protect their health.

Project Firstline trainings are designed to allow healthcare workers of any training level or educational background to understand and apply the infection control principles and protocols necessary to protect themselves, their facility, their family, and their community from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19. Trainings are approximately 10 minutes and designed to reach healthcare workers in all settings including hospitals, outpatient clinics, dialysis centers and nursing homes.

Project Firstline’s first training, COVID-19 and Infection Control: The Basics, will be released in mid-November.

AHA will complement the training videos released through this initiative with a series of thought leadership editorials, webinars, case studies and more.

In addition to AHA, partners in the CDC initiative include the American Nurses Association, National Association of County and City Health Officials, American Academy of Pediatrics and others.

More information about Project Firstline is available on the CDC website.
