Education and Resources

The Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) Program aims to reduce preventable infections across Idaho by offering free and accessible education on infection control principles.

The HAI Program offers infection control educational resources for a variety of audiences and topics to reduce the risk of infections for individuals receiving care in Idaho. Infection control education is essential for healthcare workers in order to keep themselves, their patients, their residents and their communities safe.

CDC, in collaboration with the Idaho HAI Program, held a webinar on November 14, 2023, to introduce hospitals to NHSN's Targeted Assessment Prevention (TAP) Strategy. The TAP Strategy is a framework for quality improvement that uses data for action to prevent healthcare associated infections by targeting units with an excess burden of infections by implementing prevention strategies.
