What is Project Firstline?
Project Firstline is a nationwide collaboration led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide infection control training and education to frontline healthcare workers.
The safety of our healthcare workers is our top priority. The Arkansas Department of Health Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) program and Project Firstline are designed to work directly with frontline healthcare workers to provide knowledge, through free training, and access to resources. The ADH Project Firstline program is here to help ensure that all healthcare workers will be able to adapt and understand infection control principles, protocols, and procedures to protect our community, ourselves, and everyone around to help keep Arkansans healthier and safer.
Your Resource for Infection Control
Infection Prevention and Control are critical for preventing the transmission of infectious diseases in all healthcare settings. Project Firstline is committed to helping anyone working in a healthcare facility to help protect themselves, the community, and their patients from infectious diseases. Preventing germs from spreading in healthcare facilities is most effective when everyone uses infection control practices in a consistent manner.
