In partnership with Population Health Exchange, the lifelong learning hub at Boston University School of Public Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) Healthcare-Associated Infections and Antibiotic Resistance (HAI/AR) Program is excited to lead statewide efforts to provide Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) training and resources for healthcare and public health workers and students.

As part of these training efforts, MDPH is collaborating with The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Project Firstline which aims to provide engaging, innovative, and effective infection control training. Project Firstline material helps build a foundation in infection control and is appropriate for healthcare workers in all healthcare settings including hospitals, outpatient clinics, dialysis centers, emergency medical services, nursing homes and home care. More information and links to free continuing education units (CEUs) can be found on our Project Firstline page.

In addition to the Project Firstline material, other IPC training and educational material can be found on this website, such as toolkits and more advanced IPC topics which will be covered in both live and recorded webinars. Free CEUs are available for most of our webinars! Check them out on our Webinars page.
