Pathogen Match-up: Under the Microscope Learning Tool
The American Hospital Association (AHA), in collaboration with the Association for the Health Care Environment (AHE), is making an effort to highlight the importance of using a multidisciplinary approach towards infection prevention and control (IPC) through its participation in Project Firstline.
As key partners in this initiative, AHA and AHE have released a new training resource, the Pathogen Match-up Tool.This new tool is designed to educate frontline health care workers on the six most common pathogens found in health care settings. A pathogen is defined as any organism that can produce disease or simply a germ. It can be used as an interactive team-based or individual learning activity to enhance knowledge of pathogens in the health care setting.
Project Firstline is a national training collaborative led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that aims to provide effective health care infection control training for millions of frontline U.S healthcare workers and members of the public health workforce in the fight against infectious disease threats.
