What is Project FirstLine
Atlanta Black Nurses Association has been selected as one of the American Nurses Association (ANA) 2023 Project Firstline Dissemination Partners. The dissemination partners are funded to support and expand Infection Prevention and Control resources. Infection control saves lives, and frontline healthcare workers play a critical role. Project Firstline provides innovative and accessible infection control education for all frontline healthcare workers– so they can protect their patients, their coworkers, and themselves from infectious disease threats in healthcare. As a collaborative, Project Firstline brings together more than 75 healthcare, academic, and public health partners to reach a wide range of healthcare audiences and settings across the country.
Project Firstline offers educational resources in a variety of formats to meet the diverse learning needs and preferences of the healthcare workforce. Resources are designed to empower and enable healthcare workers to think critically about infection control, using adult learning principles, educational best practices, CDC recommendations, and the science that informs them.
Project Firstline encourages all healthcare workers to take advantage of these free infection control training resources – that were developed for healthcare workers, specifically for healthcare workers.
Nurses are the nation’s first line of defense against infectious diseases such as COVID-19. That’s why Atlanta Black Nurses Association (ABNA) has partnered with American Nurses Association (ANA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to present Project Firstline.
