AHRQ, Joint Commission launch long term care e-learning module

Holly Harmon

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and The Joint Commission have launched a new e-learning module to reduce long term care infections using high reliability industry principles.

The new 50-minute e-learning tool can help assisted living and nursing home staff at all levels prevent healthcare-associated infections. The online module teaches long-term care facilities to apply these principles to prevent infections and achieve high safety performance over extended periods of time. The Joint Commission developed the e-learning module with partial funding from AHRQ. It features quizzes and a searchable database of practical resources. The free CDs and online format are available to all facilities, not only Joint Commission customers.
