Infection Prevention and Control
Offering infection prevention and control (IPC) education, training, and resources to OMA members and their healthcare teams.
Project Firstline, developed in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), provides infection prevention and control (IPC) education and resources for all types of frontline healthcare workers. The American Medical Association (AMA), Oregon Medical Association (OMA) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) are additional collaborators.
The COVID-19 pandemic emphasized the need to improve education among healthcare workers, who are at high risk for contracting infectious diseases. These gaps include staying up-to-date on infection control practices, maintaining consistent cleaning standards, and educating others on IPC topics.
Through Project Firstline, physicians, physician assistants and their teams have access to short, useful educational resources, which include webinars with CME credit, links to additional resources, and information to access local infectious disease experts.
Review and share these resources with your healthcare teams to keep up-to-date on infection control practices.
