DHS Requests Survey Participation for Infection Prevention Learning Needs Assessment

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is partnering with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to roll out a new infection prevention basics training program called Project Firstline. This program will help health care workers understand and implement infection prevention strategies to protect themselves, and their patients, families, and communities from infectious diseases, such as COVID-19.

An important part of Wisconsin’s Project Firstline efforts is a learning needs assessment to better understand this workforce and their infection prevention and control education needs for future content. Beyond those working in health care facilities, DHS is interested in learning more about the education needs of those providing home care as part of the Home and Community-Based Services Program.

If you are a home or community-based service provider, we invite you to take the learning needs assessment. Participation in this survey is voluntary, your responses will be anonymous, and there will be no negative effects for participating or choosing not to participate.
