careLearning is a nonprofit organization formed more than a decade ago which is owned and operated by more than 40 state hospital associations including NJHA. These associations work in partnership to offer a comprehensive workforce education management solution to member hospitals with an affordable price and convenient online platform.

Over 280 hospitals and healthcare organizations nationally use careLearning for their employee education needs. Virtually all of these organizations offer the On-Line Health and Safety Compliance Training Series to their employees to meet their Joint Commission/OSHA requirements.

careLearning provides:

  • A powerful underlying database which contains data captured from employee education activity. The database resides at the hospital location and not at careLearning.  Participating hospitals maintain ownership and control of this data.
  • Capability to track online activity as well as in-service education sessions.
  • A utility which easily updates the database with changes in payroll so new staff additions and deletions are accurately updated within the database.
  • The ability to develop and publish “private courses” using hospital-specific content. Virtually all participating hospitals utilize this money-saving benefit.  
  • Ready access with no long-term contractual commitments.

The New Jersey Hospital Association’s Institute for Quality and Patient Safety is committed to working with its members to improve hospital Antimicrobial stewardship programs and associated patient outcomes.

Improving the use of antimicrobials in healthcare to protect patients and reduce the threat of antimicrobial resistance is a national priority. Antimicrobial stewardship refers to a set of commitments and actions designed to “optimize the treatment of infections while reducing the adverse events associated with antimicrobial use.”

The mission of the NJHA Antimicrobial Stewardship Learning Action Collaborative is to promote the use of the appropriate agent, dose, duration, and route of administration of antimicrobial agents both in the acute care and post-acute care settings in order to improve quality of patient care and patient safety while reducing excessive costs attributable to inappropriate antimicrobial use.

This workshop will focus on educating and engaging infection preventionists in state and federal legislative and regulatory issues. The workshop will feature subject matter experts from both the national Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology and the New Jersey Department of Health. The day will provide an opportunity for subject matter experts and infection preventionists to learn from each other and work together to create a greater understanding of local and national infection prevention issues.
