Preventing Bloodborne Infections in Long Term Care Series
SERIES OVERVIEW:

In the 1980s, the worldwide AIDS epidemic focused new attention on infection control procedures, particularly as they relate to bloodborne pathogens such as the virus that causes AIDS, HIV and the hepatitis B and C viruses. After intense study by both the CDC and OSHA, new recommendations and mandates were made that brought about many changes in healthcare practice to help prevent the spread of bloodborne infections.

This new 3-part series, Preventing Bloodborne Infections in Long Term Care, provides learners with an understanding of the pathogenicity of HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C, and strategies developed for the long term care environment to prevent their spread through work practice controls and engineering controls.

The programs in this series also include workbooks that can be ordered separately.

 This series has been designated for 1.5 contact hours of continuing nursing education credits.
