Learning Needs Assessment

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and The Illinois Department of Public Health are collaborating on infection control training for frontline healthcare personnel. This assessment is meant to capture your experiences with infection control training, your confidence in being able to effectively implement infection control activities, and your preferences for additional training. Responses will be used to inform decisions on the development and delivery of future training to ensure it best meets the needs of you and your colleagues. Your participation in this survey is voluntary, your responses will be anonymous, and there will not be any negative effects if you decide you do not want to participate.
