Back by popular demand, AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (AMDA) will offer the Infection Prevention in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Certificate Course in 2018. Developed in partnership with the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the course will address aspects of infection control and prevention that are unique to skilled nursing facilities, which must balance a home-like environment while minimizing the risk of infections. The course will review occupational health concerns in PA/LTC including outbreaks that affect both staff and residents, opportunities to improve antimicrobial use and strategies to reduce the transmission of infections, including multi-drug resistant organisms and Clostridium difficile.

Participants who attend this course will earn 10 CME credits and a certificate in Infection Prevention in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care. Certificates will be sent electrically to participants within three weeks of course completion. Participants must attend the course in its entirety to earn a certificate. Please be sure to scan your name badge at the beginning of each concurrent session time slot to verify your attendance. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact AMDA’s education department at education@paltc.org.
