Infection reduction work gets HRET and CDC help

May 31, 2017

Washington State will soon join the Health Research Educational Trust’s (HRET’s) efforts around reducing hospital-acquired infections. The initiative is designed to strengthen infection control programs and practices through robust resources, such as on-demand education, national expert access, coaching and more. Health care has made amazing improvements in reducing infections in hospitals and other care settings, but we’re working to get to ZERO, and infections are relentless enemies.

The Strive program — “States Targeting Reduction In Infections via Engagement” — harnesses the knowledge and influence of HRET, the CDC and experts across the country in this effort. If you are interested in joining this program, please contact Jessica Symank at  (Jennifer Graves)
