New Mexico Infection Prevention Collaborative

Comagine Health, in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Health, Healthcare Acquired Infections Program, seeks to advance infection prevention during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Recordings of past webinars and supporting resources from the learning collaborative are available here. Each session focuses on a specific aspect of implementing a successful infection prevention and control program in your setting. Tools and forms that are general in nature and may apply to multiple sessions are located under Tools below.


Education

As part of this work, we are holding an interactive 11-part virtual learning series. Using CDC guidance and CDC’s Project Firstline national training materials, we will cover topics such as mitigating risk, vaccines, hand hygiene, environmental cleaning, appropriate PPE use and pandemic fatigue, as well as specific New Mexico guidance about infection control.

Project Firstline is a new national training collaborative for infection control designed specifically with the frontline worker in mind, with accessible, concise and interactive educational modules.

This series begins Jan. 28, 2021, and continues every other Thursday through June 17, 2021. Sessions are open to all staff and owners working in assisted living homes, intermediate care facilities, residential care and home health and hospice settings in the state of New Mexico.

Below are the registration links for each care setting along with flyers containing more information.
