The Preventionist Newsletter

The Preventionist is the newsletter of the hospital infection preventionists who are participating with the Department in HAI prevention grant activities.

The Preventionist is published quarterly (July, October, January and April) to:

  • provide updates on HAI prevention to participants
  • highlight success stories in infection elimination
  • recognize leaders in infection prevention
  • provide new information on the HAI prevention action plan

We welcome the submission of articles, commentary, success stories or recognition of leaders in infection prevention.
