Ballroom F (Pasadena Convention Center)
This pre-conference workshop is geared toward HAI Coordinators, HAI Program Managers, and health department staff that are currently engaged or interested in HAI Prevention and Response activities. The workshop will be interactive, including health departments sharing their experiences and facilitated active dialogue among participants.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will have a better understanding of how HAI programs and other health department activities can provide data for action to encourage HAI elimination across the continuum of care.
