Project Firstline is a national training collaborative for healthcare infection control funded by CDC through a grant from the American Rescue Plan. ASN was engaged to partner with the American Medical Association to develop four short, engaging videos which support CDC’s Core Interventions for the dialysis setting.
- Hand hygien
- Injection safety
- Personal protective equipment
- Environmental disinfection
These videos will be available in the fall of 2022.
Project Firstline collaborators have developed numerous resources which can be accessed on the Project Firstline website.
Properly fitting PPE is both a matter of safety for healthcare workers and patients, and a critical aspect of creating diverse, inclusive healthcare environments where everyone is supported and treated equitably. To read more about the needs of properly fitted PPE, check out “When One Size Doesn’t Fit All: PPE Fit and Equity in Health Care” on CDC’s blog site.
CDC developed the Project Firstline Facilitator Toolkit to assist in leading an infection control training. This toolkit is designed to work with different learning styles and busy schedules, and includes training plans and support materials for training sessions.
