Infection Control Resources for Healthcare Workers
Project Firstline is a national training and education collaborative that provides clear and effective infection control resources designed with and for healthcare workers. Education is the first step in recognizing when to take action to protect your patients and yourself from infections.
- Infection control is more than just policies and procedures, it’s an essential part of caring for and protecting patients.
- When you can understand and apply infection control actions consistently and confidently – every person, every action, every day – it saves lives.
- Reach out to Colorado’s Project Firstline team at CDPHE_project_firstline@state.co.us with any questions or training requests.
