Webinar: COVID-19 Surveillance (Reporting, learning and sharing from the Canadian Nosocomial Infection Surveillance Program)
February 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Patients should never have to worry about getting an infection while in hospital.
Yet every year, many hospitalized Canadians continue to acquire an infection during their hospital stay. Viral respiratory infections (VRI) cause increased morbidity and mortality in both adult and pediatric healthcare settings.
This webinar will:
- Provide an overview of the current CNISP COVID-19 surveillance protocol and definitions
- Present key findings to date of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in CNISP hospitals
- Provide participants an opportunity to hear from participating CNISP hospitals regarding their experience in using the protocol for collecting and reporting COVID-19 surveillance data
- Provide an opportunity for hospitals who do not participate in the CNSIP to learn about the protocol and ask questions of CNISP staff and participants.
Time/date: February 4th, 12pm – Atlantic time
