The NYS Department of Health Urges Healthcare Providers to Participate in No-Cost Project Firstline Infection Control Training
With the continued threat of COVID-19 variants and other emerging infectious-disease risks, IPRO and the Home Care Association of New York State (HCA) are working together under a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-led project to bring critical infection-control education to frontline healthcare staff in New York State. Project Firstline is supported by Health Research Inc. (HRI), the corporation that administers funding to further public health goals of the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and other entities. Project Firstline trainings are free and available to all health care workers. Its goal is to provide innovative, engaging, and effective training on infection control protocols directly to frontline healthcare personnel and the public health workforce, building on existing training for home health aides, personal care aides, and other direct caregivers, along with a special emphasis on training frontline staff who are not required to complete mandatory infection control training for re-licensure.
