Abstract

Infection preventionists are specialized health care professionals tasked with developing and implementing infection control policies, educating staff and patients on prevention practices, and investigating outbreaks. Infection preventionists role in developing effective measures for infection prevention and control and ensuring public health and safety became even more vital given the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important for health care systems and institutions to incorporate lessons learned, enhance infection prevention and control resources, and grow the infection preventionists workforce to prepare for future pandemic events.
