Program Description: A comprehensive infection prevention and control (IPC) program is part of the Conditions of Participation,
Emergency Preparedness, and OSHA surveys. COVID made agencies acutely aware of the potential gaps in their infection control and prevention programs. In this presentation learn what basic
steps you, as an administrator or leader in the agency, need to ensure is taking place to meet regulatory guidance, and keep your staff and clients safe. Before COVID- reared its ugly head,
the CDC noted in an Emerging Infectious Disease article that home-based nurses or caregivers have the opportunity to spot signs of infection during wound care, respiratory care,
infusion therapy, enteral therapy, and urinary tract care. From basics of teaching proper techniques, to monitoring, to contact tracing, we discuss ways to combine several of your
activities to decrease the amount of work needed to meet regulatory guidelines.

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
