South Dakota Project Firstline (PFL) Office Hours provides an opportunity to listen to a new educational topic each month. PFL office hours allow participants to join a Q&A discussion on topics of interest and relevance to the attendees. Additionally, new office hours now include Cheri Fast, BSN, RN, CIC, LTC- CIP, and her healthcare acquired infection (HAI) knowledge.   

Register here and join PFL’s office hours call this month. Make sure to bring an infection control topic or question that can be discussed following the educational topic for the month of August.    

Rebecca Sime, RN, program manager for the South Dakota Foundation for Medical Care (SDFMC) announced the topic by pointing out,  

“August’s focus is Germs Live in the Respiratory system. You can help stop the spread of germs, and it can be as easy as hand hygiene.”   

Mary Jane Koehn, RN

Attendees are invited to share topics they would like discussed in upcoming sessions. They can provide suggestions during the call or send an email with a topic of interest. Infection Control and Prevention is a healthcare area that has the potential to impact everyone. Actively participating in ongoing education and training in infection prevention are key practices for healthcare workers in preventing healthcare acquired infections.
