This Competency Assessment assesses the following outcome(s):

It is important to understand the process of how ideas become regulations and rules and how rules and regulations become policy and laws for healthcare facilities. Imagine yourself as a healthcare administrator for a large healthcare facility. You need to create an infection control program and training program for your facility. The spread of diseases and conditions, for example, like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in many healthcare facilities across the country highlights the urgent need for an infection control program and training program to implement your plan.
Create a PowerPoint® presentation to explain the new infection control and training program you will implement in your healthcare facility. The plan should include guidelines, information and procedures for providing optimal infection control practices. The training program should be described and your plan to implement and monitor the success of the program. The program and training should highlight current best practices and demonstrate how the new program will adhere to state and national rules and regulations in place for healthcare facility infection control. The PowerPoint should be easy to understand and include charts, graphs, pictures, and/or animations to visually depict the points you are making in the presentation. You should draft explicit notes in paragraph form to expand on the points you are making on each slide. The slide content and notes sections should be professional, well organized, and logical to support your viewpoints and purpose clearly to your viewer/reader. The presentation should include at least 15 slides and include at least three (3) references properly cited using APA and a reference slide at the end of the presentation.
