It’s critical that frontline healthcare workers understand infection control principles and protocols in order to protect themselves, their facility, their family, and their community. CDC’s new infection control training collaborative, Project Firstline, is designed for just that purpose.

Prevent the spread of respiratory viruses

YOU: ALL Frontline Healthcare Workers

The Goal

Project Firstline’s goal is to strengthen the safety of patients and healthcare workers at healthcare settings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. The comprehensive infection control program features new training for staff across all healthcare facilities (hospitals, outpatient clinics, dialysis centers, nursing homes, etc.)

Increasing Capacity

Project Firstline will allow DHEC to get additional infection control capacity across the state’s healthcare facilities. While the existing infection preventionists at DHEC and at our healthcare facilities are dedicated and highly skilled, there is a need for more capacity and expanded training.

Project Firstline’s infection control training is for all frontline staff in South Carolina across all disciplines (nurses, housekeepers, doctors, physical therapists, etc.) and all types of healthcare facilities.
