South Dakota Project FirstLine is excited to announce they have fun NEW RESOURCES for healthcare workers, just in time for International Infection Prevention week, October 16-22, 2022. This week draws awareness worldwide of the importance of preventing the spread of illnesses and infectious agents. Project Firstline is a national CDC collaborative to educate and train healthcare workers on infectious disease prevention. The SD Foundation for Medical Care leads the Project Firstline program in South Dakota, in partnership with the CDC and the SD Department of Health.
Jess Danko with the South Dakota Foundation for Medical Care, and program manager for Project Firstline says there are fun new interactive resources available on their website at www.sdprojectfirstline.org. One new resource titled What’s Wrong with this picture, provides users real-world learning. “The ‘What is wrong in this picture?’ resource provides healthcare staff an opportunity to identify infection prevention concerns that happen in a real-world everyday healthcare professional setting. These are great for breakroom display and discussion!”
Visitors to the website will notice new additions to the website not only this week, but into the future. “Our website is continually being updated,” said Charlotte Hofer, Director of Public Relations and Marketing on Project Firstline. “Check back often, as new information and exciting new interactive resources are always coming out from the CDC.”
Other resources on the SD Project FirstLine website include: CDC posters on infection prevention, infographics, social media graphics, and Project Firstline video training modules.
