The Kimberly-Clark Health Care Education Bus is a one-of-a-kind mobile classroom that offers highly topical, accredited clinical education courses to hospitals across America. The courses provide clinicians with additional knowledge on critical issues in healthcare, such as sterile processing, operating room best practices, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), surgical site infections (SSIs) and preventing the spread of airborne infections.
This year, the bus includes new learning and demo areas. The bus kicked off a new three-year commitment to the tour this March at Moses Cone Health Systems in Greensboro, N.C. Last year, the bus visited 79 locations in the U.S. and Canada, including stops at tradeshows and conferences. The stops occurred in 60 cities in 25 states and one Canadian province.
The bus was most recently exhibited at the annual meeting of the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM), where attendees were invited aboard for education sessions.
