Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, a Web-based, real-time infection prevention surveillance, documentation and reporting system, announces a complimentary Webinar, "New Research on Preventing Hospital Infection" presented by Betsy McCaughey, PhD.
McCaughey, former lieutenant governor of New York state and chairman/founder of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths (RID), will review the latest research on healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs) and the newest strategies to prevent them. The Webinar will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EDT. To register, visit http://www.sentri7.com/infection
In 2004, McCaughey founded the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths (www.hospitalinfection.org), a nationwide educational campaign to stop hospital-acquired infections. RID has helped to make hospital infections a major public issue, provided compelling evidence that preventing infection improves hospital profitability as well as saving lives, and won legislation in more than 20 states for public reporting of infection rates.
McCaughey's research on how to prevent infection deaths has been featured on Good Morning America, the CBS Morning Show, ABC's 20/20, and many other national programs. She has appeared on Fox News Network's Hannity & Colmes, The O'Reilly Factor, CNN's Talk Back Live, and numerous radio programs.
