The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Project Firstline is a national collaborative of diverse academic, public health, and healthcare partners that aims to provide engaging, innovative, and effective infection control training for frontline U.S. healthcare workers as well as members of the public health workforce.
Project Firstline supports several academic partners to develop tools and resources for IPC in healthcare, including resources tailored for small and rural healthcare facilities; apply human factors engineering and heuristics approaches to improve IPC competency assessment, reduce risks, and improve IPC implementation in diverse care settings; and improve our understanding of the impacts of the environmental factors (e.g. air movement) and aerosol generating procedures on pathogen transmission in healthcare.
