The Jefferson College of Nursing Visiting Scholar Series
Michael Bell, MD

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
No two days are the same in healthcare, but caring for and protecting patients is always the top priority. This includes protecting patients from getting infections while they are receiving care.
In this timely online talk, Dr. Bell introduces Project Firstline, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Training Collaborative for Healthcare Infection Control. This new training program, created in collaboration with many partner organizations including the American Nurses Association, provides front line healthcare workers, students of the health professions, and members of the public health workforce the infection control training they need to protect patients, communities, and the nation from infectious disease threats.
