The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the need for a unified and standardized approach to infection control measures. Project Firstline provides core web-based training with COVID-19 specific knowledge about germ transmission and infection prevention and control. Using resources allocated to CDC by Congress, Project Firstline will invest $180 million over 2 years to reach all health care workers, communities, and settings by engaging numerous national organizations and associations. ANA collaborates with partner organizations at the national, state, and local levels to provide nurses timely access to ongoing foundational and practical IPC knowledge and resources through engaging web-based training, easy to access toolkits, and on-going tele-mentorship.
Nurses can access training toolkits that include printable training guides, factsheets, and communication tools that cover strategies for communication of IPC policies, and IPC actions to talk with co-workers, patients, and families at www.ANAProjectFirstline.org.
