The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released three new modules in its series of free online training courses to help health care organizations prevent and control infections. Developed by the AHA’s Health Research & Educational Trust, the newest courses address building a business case for infection prevention, family and patient engagement, and environmental cleaning. HRET, part of the AHA Center for Health Innovation, led a team of national infection prevention experts to develop the STRIVE curriculum with funding from the CDC. To access the courses, all accredited for continuing education, visit https://www.cdc.gov/infectioncontrol/training/strive.html.
