Acute Communicable Disease Control

The ACDC Infection Prevention (IP) Team is hosting a weekly call to discuss infection prevention practices in the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) setting. With the goal of fostering discussion among LA County SNFs, this program includes the following:
  • Core infection prevention concepts
  • Office hours
  • Open and guided Q&A
  • Case studies
  • IP resources
  • Subject matter experts: IPs, nurses, physicians, epidemiologists
This series is meant to be an all teach all learn environment. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we learned the importance of establishing deeper connections and better communication between Infection Prevention Team members. By working together, we can improve resident safety within Los Angeles County healthcare settings. We invite you to join us on the next call, using the access information below. You may also review the previous sessions using the PDF links below.
