This certificate course will address aspects of infection prevention that are unique to skilled nursing facilities, where residents share dining, recreation and rehabilitation experiences. The course will review occupational health concerns in PALTC, including outbreaks, those that affect both staff and residents and also emphasize opportunities to reduce unnecessary and inappropriate antimicrobial use. Speakers will specifically discuss communication at care transitions and ways to talk with concerned family members, who may have been taught myths and misinformation.
