NNPHI seeks a partner to conduct a feasibility study to understand the potential to implement infection prevention and control (IPC), healthcare-associated infection (HAI), and antibiotic resistance into a learning pathway and certificate for graduate students in allied health, public health, and healthcare-associated fields (AI).
