Project Firstline Seeks Frontline Professional Feedback

We know COVID won’t be the last threat. As new diseases emerge, we want to make sure EVERYONE in a healthcare setting has access to the latest science & best training on infectious disease control. To do that, we need your insight as a professional on the frontlines!

Because healthcare employees are in close contact with patients and the public, you are at greater risk for the spread of infections, germs, and COVID-19. To help your facility prepare for the possible spread of infections including COVID-19, we need your help to identify your needs.

We’re asking you to take a Learning Needs survey.  It only takes 10 minutes, and your input is critical; it will help us create the best training possible for healthcare and essential workers throughout South Dakota, to prevent the next pandemic.

Please take a moment to complete the survey.

About Project Firstline: The South Dakota Foundation for Medical Care is partnering with the SD Dept. of Health on the CDC’s Project Firstline to survey frontline professionals in our state to get insight on what training resources are needed. Results from the survey will help to develop better infection prevention training.
