Kay also covers how an agency’s QAPI program and Infection Control Program work together to ensure safe and effective care. This program includes a thought provoking discussion about how agencies should review and renovate their infection control policies based on program rules and the latest changes and best practices. Kay concludes with a robust Q&A to ensure you walk away feeling empowered to effectively address infection control in your agency.
