Available: On Demand
Posted in Webinars
Speakers: Wava M. Truscott, PhD MBA
There is a tremendous amount of misinformation about how influenza is transmitted, and how you can protect yourself and your patients from infection. This course, will discuss the roles (or not!) of large droplets, droplet nuclei and surface contamination in the spread of influenza. Scientific studies along with the epidemiology of actual patient and healthcare provider infections will be presented as we explore diversity of pathways. Reservoir disruption activities and the appropriate personal protective equipment will be addressed. Practical recommendations will be described that can readily be put into practice by every hospital employee and could help contain an influenza outbreak threat.
