Preventing transmission of infections in a long-term care facility (LTCF) setting where residents are encouraged to be ambulatory and actively participate in group activities can be challenging. This course provides an overview of the risks of infection in the LTCF and reviews specific infections that may occur and prevention measures. In addition, the components of a successful Infection Control Program are presented, including surveillance and outbreak control. Links to Infection Prevention and Control resources are included to help develop and maintain an effective program to prevent and control infections in LTCFs.
