AHRQ and Joint Commission Launch E-Learning Module To Reduce Long Term Care Infections
Assisted living and nursing home staff at all levels can help prevent healthcare-associated infections by using a 50-minute e-learning toolbased on high reliability principles. The online module teaches long-term care facilities to apply these principles, which can help them achieve safety, quality and efficiency goals, to prevent infections and achieve high safety performance over extended periods. The Joint Commission developed the e-learning module with partial funding from AHRQ. It features quizzes and a searchable database of practical resources. The free CDs and online format are available to all facilities, not only Joint Commission customers.
