Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Overview:

This 90-minute session will provide an overview of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) healthcare-associated infections prevention initiative, the Healthy People 2020 healthcare-associated infection objectives, and provide action steps that healthcare and public health professionals can take to prevent and reduce healthcare-associated infections.

Meeting Objectives:

• Raise awareness of the burden of healthcare-associated infections
• Provide an opportunity for leaders in the field of healthcare-associated infections to discuss policies and strategies to prevent central-line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection
• Provide examples of outstanding leadership in CLABSI prevention
• Stimulate further action to reduce healthcare-associated infections in healthcare facilities, public health organizations, and local communities nationwide


This is an opportunity to seek a response from policymakers to community concerns about the danger to circumcised boys from MRSA expressed during a recent CDC community consultation in which over 20% of respondents specifically identified non-theraputic circumcision as a risk factor ( see http://www.foreskin-restoration.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8739 ).

Also, baby boys with haemophilia are placed at greater risk of central line infections if they suffer their first bleed following circumcision ( see http://www.foreskin-restoration.net/forum/showthread.php?t=8078 ), including from hepatitis, which is currently not been thoroughly screen for in all donor blood sources ( see http://www.foreskin-restoration.net/forum/showthread.php?t=7757 ).
