In the sections listed below, you will find numerous learning resources including webinars, videotaped lectures with accompanying PowerPoint slides, brief video clips, links to online tools and practice kits, an extensive list of the latest references regarding best practices, and no or low-cost continuing education activities.
We also offer online courses specific to healthcare associated infections. Those are designated with the letters "HAI" in front of the course title.
The resources are divided into nine major sections:
- Basic infection control resources
- Acute care
- Ambulatory care
- Long-term care
- Antimicrobial stewardship
- Patient safety
- Preparing for Certification in Infection Prevention and Control
- Coronavirus (COVID-19)
- See all resources
The HAI website and all activities and content contained therein were made possible by the University of Missouri through contracts with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services who, in turn, received funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
CDC’s Project Firstline is a collaborative of diverse healthcare and public health partners that aims to provide engaging, innovative, and effective infection control training for millions of frontline U.S. healthcare workers as well as members of the public health workforce.
Project Firstline’s innovative content is designed so that—regardless of a healthcare worker’s previous training or educational background— they can understand and confidently apply the infection control principles and protocols necessary to protect themselves, their facility, their family, and their community from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19.
