Healthcare Surfaces Institute Education
HSI’s education initiative provides continuing education on all aspects of the surfaces issue, including challenges for healthcare facilities and manufacturers, such as:
- Microbiology surrounding surfaces and how transmission can occur
- The selection of surface materials for the design of products and the built environment
- Surface disinfection, compatibility issues, and surface innovation
- Soft surfaces and the challenges of disinfection
- Definitions of surfaces
- Surfaces as an assembly
Our on-demand educational platform addresses how surfaces contribute to the spread of microbes that cause deadly infections. Our webinar presenters are experts in their field and present on both time-sensitive and foundational topics related to surface disinfection issues.
Webinar attendees and HSI donors have access to the HSI online forum. On the forum, donors network with other professionals and pose questions for discussion to our webinar presenters and other experts.
Continuing Education Credit
Some of our webinars provide 1.0 hours of Nursing Continuing Education (CE) credit.
A range of materials including infographics, presentations, checklists, training parameters, and educational curricula are also being developed to target individuals at all levels of awareness to improve their knowledge, skills, and ability to act as agents of change.
