Training Course in Healthcare Epidemiology and Infection Control (Bochum Germany)
|Happy 2015 ESCMID-SHEA Training Course Students and Faculty|
The ESCMID-SHEA Training Course in Healthcare Epidemiology and Infection Control has been redesigned. Instead of predominately lectures, the new course model now includes three distinct tracks. The first track is an interactive and practical exercise on how to analyze and respond to a high-rate of surgical site infections in your hospital. The second track covers data analysis of a possible outbreak of C. difficile infections. The third track includes 4 interactive masterclasses led by highly experienced hospital epidemiologists covering topics such as outbreaks, responding to high endemic rates of HAIs, infections in surgical populations and other topics.
The course was pilot tested last year in Cairns, Australia with great success (see above) and the instructors can't wait to build on that success this fall in Europe. We hope you can join us 4-7 October 2016 in Bochum, Germany. Registration is via the Aesculap Akademie website.
