Description

Barry Inman, BA-BS, CIC, will share practical solutions to a variety of “what if” infectious disease scenarios that healthcare professionals confront routinely. So many questions can and do arise when it comes to the safety and health of your patients, yourself…and even your family!

Are your confident in your responses…

  • One patient with an ileal conduit urinary system that, when cultured, revealed microorganisms. Should the treatment include antibiotics…or not?
  • A co-worker is pregnant…which patient rooms won’t pose a potential risk?
  • What innovative skills can you personally incorporate to reduce the incidence of healthcare-associated infections?
  • How can compromised patients be kept safe when multi-drug resistant microorganisms are so prevalent?
  • You’ve been providing great patient care all shift. Now it’s time to head home. How do you make that transition and not introduce your family to some of the infectious diseases you’ve been around?
  • A disease that may be in a distant part of the world could find its way to our backyard! These emerging cases are often complicated in practice. Are you up-to-date to intervene effectively?
