Infection Control Week takes place October 20-26, 2014, and PICNet has lots of activities and resources available, with more coming over the next few months:
To help you plan your IC Week activities and promotion, PICNet has created a downloadable toolkit with a planning/resources template, 20 different activities to choose from, and communications tools such as sample newsletters, blog posts, and tweets.
2. “Let’s Go Viral!” Workshop In-A-Box
Run your own training workshop with this educational game that PICNet has created to help you train your staff in infection control basics. The game is also a great team-building exercise!
The Let’s Go Viral kit has been updated: You can buy or download the new 2014 version, and if you have the 2013 version, all you need is an updated instruction booklet.
