Which group adapts faster; a harmful pathogen or the infection preventionists that keep patients and sterile processing professionals safe? As the public health emergency of the pandemic officially comes to a close, Infection Preventionists have played a monumental role in recent years across every spectrum of healthcare. What has that look like in supporting proper PPE use in particular?

Season 20 of the Beyond Clean podcast, "Armed & (Compliantly) Dangerous," is all about personal protective equipment (PPE), and in this episode, Jill Holdsworth, Manager of Infection Prevention at Emory Health-Midtown outlines her dynamic approach to staff safety. Using a unique combination of firsthand observation, just-in-time training, and even new technology like podcasts and virtual reality, Jill demonstrates the type of robust education required for keeping emerging risks at bay.

Join us on the final episode of Season 20 to learn about the partnerships with infection prevention that will make the difference for frontline staff. We discuss the factors that impact compliance with PPE, get an inside look at how sterile processing professionals can work in the field of infection prevention, and dive into the new Protective Barrier (PB) 70 standard from AAMI.
