Partnering to Heal: Teaming Up Against Healthcare Associated Infections


Partnering to Heal is a computer-based, video-simulation training program on infection control practices for clinicians, health professional students, and patient advocates.

The training highlights effective communication about infection control practices and ideas for creating a "culture of safety" in healthcare institutions to keep patients from getting sicker. Users assume the identity of the following five main characters and make decisions about preventing healthcare-associated infections (HAIs): A physician, a registered nurse, an infection preventionist, a patient family member and a third year medical student.
