About this Event

Annual Infection Control Update: This two hour course is designed to provide updated information on infectious disease regulations, record-keeping requirements, HIPAA regulations, vaccine issues, and much more to individuals who have previously completed the Basic or Advanced Designated Officer courses.

Basic Designated Infection Control Officer Course: this two-day course is designed to prepare the Infection Control Officer to fully meet the requirements for the position established under NFPA 1581, OSHA, and the Ryan White Law. The Ryan White Law states that each fire, EMS and law enforcement agency must have a designated officer to manage exposure issues for the department. Understanding this role and the many aspects of this job is important to assist with department risk management and department member advocacy.

The training program will lay out the various laws and regulations that must be taken into account to establish a comprehensive program. In addition, participants will learn the core regulations that must be taken into account to establish a comprehensive program, and participants will learn the core components of an effective post-exposure management program.

The roles and responsibilities along with a job description are presented. Step-by-step program formulation is presented to enable the course participant to return to his/her workplace and set up a working program. A well trained designated officer will be an effective advocate for both the members of the departments as well as the administration.

Attendees will problem solve program implementation. Receive updates on disease, legal issues, and review multidrug resistant organisms, MRSA, VRE, C-diff, H1N1, Norovirus, MERS, Ebola, and Zika.
