Description
The Partnering to Heal 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 five main characters and make decisions about preventing Health Care-Associated Infections (HAIs): a physician, a registered nurse, an infection preventionist, a patient family member and a third-year medical student.

Keywords: Practice Transformation
