Upcoming NICE Network Webinar on Infection Control in Maternal and Child Health

The Nursing Infection Control Education Network (NICE Network) will host the seventh webinar in the Empowering Nurses to Protect Themselves and Their Patients series on May 15. The webinar, A Discussion of Current Infection Prevention and Control Challenges in Maternal and Child Health Settings, will feature the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses.

Nurses use their skills and expertise to help provide safe care and treatment to patients. Adherence to infection prevention and control recommendations is critical to prevent occupational exposures and the cross transmission of pathogens in healthcare settings. This webinar will discuss infection prevention practices and challenges in women’s health, obstetrics, and pediatrics, the importance of standard precautions, and practical solutions and ways to implement infection prevention in these specialty environments.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, May 15, at 11 AM ET.

The NICE Network seeks to empower nurses to protect themselves and their patients by providing real time infection prevention and control training to U.S. nurses. NACNS joined 20 other nursing associations in this project last year.
