CDC releases free online infection-prevention training

The CDC released three new online courses in infection prevention developed by a team led by the American Hospital Association's Health Research & Educational Trust.

The CDC/STRIVE curriculum focuses on infection prevention and control. Three courses are available now, and eight more courses will be available in late September. The courses are free and can be used for new employee training as well as annual infection prevention training.

The three courses online now focus on competency-based training, hand hygiene and strategies for preventing healthcare-associated infections.

Courses to be released in September include building a business case for infection prevention, patient and family engagement, Clostridioides difficile infection and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia.

Continuing education credits are available for the courses.
