Utah Infection Prevention

Prepare, Prevent, Protect

COVID-19 has challenged our health care leaders, frontline nursing staff and personal caregivers in ways we could not have imagined. Now, in the third year of a global pandemic, our work together isn’t done. Join the Utah Department of Health and Human Service’s Healthcare-Associated Infections program and Comagine Health’s team of infection prevention, quality improvement and adult learning experts to learn how to assess, strengthen and sustain your infection prevention and control program. This program is open to all long-term care settings in Utah: nursing facilities, assisted living and intermediate care facilities. 


Infection Prevention Is Everyone's Business

Whether you’ve been responsible for stopping the spread of infectious disease for two days, two months or two years, a sustainable infection prevention and control (IPC) program starts with a clear understanding of your team’s strengths and opportunities for improvement. Our certified infection prevention experts will use their decades of experience to coach you and your staff on the foundational elements of an evidence-based IPC program for long-term care settings. They will then walk you through the steps to assess your program and make improvements.

Join us for a free two-part educational series in July and August to take your IPC program to the next level! 


Part 1: Evaluating the Foundations of Your Infection Prevention Program: Recording | Slides

This session will teach you the foundations of a top-tier infection prevention program and prepare you for part 2, when you will assess your program.

Part 2: IPC Program Assessment Workshops - Small Groups

In part 2, our certified infection control experts will share tools and resources while leading you through a program assessment for your own facility.

These sessions will occur August 8-25, 2022.
