Infection Prevention Webinars
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) — with the California Association of Long Term Care Medicine (CALTCM) and Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG) — hosts a weekly Wednesday webinar on infection prevention for long term care facilities. This webinar is a supplement to the weekly CDPH Thursday skilled nursing facility (SNF) Infection Prevention Calls to discuss any recent updates on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and provide an additional venue for addressing questions. Like the Thursday calls, the Wednesday webinars focus on infection prevention guidance for SNFs. It is recommended that SNF infection prevention staff attend. Local health departments and SNF administrators, directors of nursing, and medical directors are also encouraged to attend.
Please register in advance; space is limited. A recording link will be available the day following the webinar.

(If you join the video portion of the webinar, for a better webinar experience we recommend you have WebEx call your phone—don't dial in yourself).
