Contact tracing could be what frees the world from the grasp of COVID-19. It’s a popular method of containment that’s already helped flatten the curve. But for this to work long-term, we need more qualified healthcare professionals with the proper training—training that isn’t easy to find.
The Contact Tracing and Infection Control course covers all CDC-recommended training elements required to successfully identify patients who have come in close contact with a particular virus or contagion. We’ll discuss important breach avoidance strategies and outline the main steps involved in the contact tracing process. You’ll learn all the basics of HIPAA and how Protected Health Information related to your work as a contact tracer. This is a relatively new development in healthcare, so you’ll get a complete overview of how contact tracing works and what is expected in the role.
