Training Overview Description

Don’t miss out! Register now for the Alaska Infection Control Conference 2019. Our in-state two day conference is a great place for you to network with your peers, mentors and experts in infection control.

Details: Our keynote speaker, Dr Jay Butler, will start our program off with the importance of infection control from a national perspective. Conference experts will review a variety of “hot topics” to address how you can meet the infection control challenges you face each and every day. This year, our conference will focus on the healthcare facility environment. Experts will review the impact of building systems (i.e. HVAC), water management plans and environmental reservoirs (i.e. ice machines) in transmitting infections. Please bring along your plant manager, engineer and/or building maintenance staff to meet our experts and their peers for the general sessions and a specialty break-out session. We provide single and two day conference rates!

Material Covered:
- HVAC in the healthcare environment
- Water management plan
- Drug diversion in health care facilities
- Prevention and treatment of UTIs
- Construction planning & implementation
- Legionella outbreaks
- Scopes problems and practices
- Process measures to drive improvement
