The Nevada AAP is proud to partner with the CDC to promote Project Firstline, the CDC’s National Training Collaborative for Healthcare Infection Prevention & Control. In addition to our local events and activities, national AAP has created a video series perfect for Nevada AAP members to view and share with staff.
For the Nevada AAP Monthly Walk with a Doc in January, we welcomed Chapter Member Dr. Terence McAllister who gave a brief presentation about infection control at home utilizing the CDC’s Project Firstline and then took questions live.
If you missed it, watch the video replay of Dr. McAllister's talk here.
After watching the video, please take a minute to complete a very brief, 12-question survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PFL_NV. Although primarily targeted at healthcare workers, we want feedback from Nevada families as well!
For the survey, the Session Name is NEVADA AAP WWAD, the Session Date is January 10, 2021, the Session Type is Town Hall, and the Chapter affiliation is Nevada. The rest of the questions are straight forward.
The Nevada AAP was excited to sponsor the 2021 Nevada Health Conference hosted by Immunize Nevada. This was our message to conference attendees:
Here in Nevada, we have the power to stop infections. Together. Every frontline healthcare worker deserves to understand infection control principles and protocols and feel they can confidently apply them to protect themselves, their facility, their family, and their community. Our community.
Nevada AAP pediatricians live and work in Nevada and have dedicated their professional lives to the health of all children. Our members are concerned about a wide range of pediatric health issues in Nevada including helping all children access preventative care and vaccinations and protecting children from gun violence and from tobacco and substance addiction. Lately, though, the number one concern of our physician members is the toll the school closing has taken on the physical and mental health of students throughout Nevada.
The Nevada AAP has partnered with the CDC’s Project Firstline to empower you all, Nevada’s frontline and public healthcare workers, with the knowledge needed to stop the spread of infection, so we can safely reopen the schools for Nevada’s children.
