What is the grant program?
HONOReform’s Injection Safety Education Grant Program is designed to provide continuing education about safe injection best practices to healthcare providers and consumer at low or no cost. Evelyn and Tom McKnight, founders of HONOReform, will share their own compelling story of infection attributed to reuse of syringes in a medical setting. Additionally, the McKnights will examine factors contributing to the outbreak and make recommendations for prevention.
Why is this important?
Healthcare providers in all types of settings have reviewed and followed safe injection best practices. Nonetheless, the “unthinkable” still happens, with significant impact on the patient and providers. The CDC estimates that there have been more than 50 outbreaks of Hepatitis C and/or Hepatitis B in the past decade due to reused needles, syringes or medication vials.
Who is it for?
Healthcare risk managers
How does it benefit me?
The in-person presentation is designed to be eligible for continuing education credit for physician, nursing and allied health professions’ licensure renewal.
