Train-the-Trainer Program for Nurse Educators – IPCP & Sepsis Protocols – is coming to Bangor

We are pleased to announce that we've added a Bangor session of the Train-the-Trainer Program for Nurse Educators to our winter calendar.  This program is being offered in partnership with our Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) and focuses on two key areas :  
 
· Where CMS has implemented changes pertaining to your Infection Prevention and Control Program (IPCP) - and more changes are coming - we will revisit what's required and discuss ways to meet them. Do you know where you are with your IPCP? The opening session will help you identify and address gaps in your IPCP. 
 
· In the second half of the program, you will participate in a Sepsis Train-the-Trainer Program. With sepsis, every minute counts so knowing the signs and symptoms could save a life! In addition to hearing the latest information on sepsis you will receive a toolkit and resources for properly training clinical and non-clinical staff about sepsis.
 
Participants in the three previous sessions have given this program excellent reviews. This final session will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn (Bangor); registration will begin at 9:00 AM with the program running from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM. For more details,  please refer to the January edition of our Education Quarterly.
