APIC (Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology) is the Infection Preventionist’s National Professional Organization. In case you haven’t become a member or visited the The APIC website there is a new Infection Prevention educational training class; Continuing the Care , Infection Prevention in the long-term Care Setting.

Here is a link to the 2012 CDC Recommended adult immunization schedule

Hope this is helpful to you LTC IPs!
