Infection Prevention Coach (IPC) Training Program


The GNYHA Infection Prevention Coach (IPC) Training Program is a training and staff empowerment program that develops strategies to improve communication, teamwork, and workflow in an effort to create a culture in which health care workers understand their valuable role in eliminating infections. With grant support from the New York State Department of Health, the IPC Training Program expanded on previous success in collaboration with 1199 SEIU. The program complements GNYHA’s work with its members around building a culture of safety, promoting leadership, and reducing hospital-acquired infections.
