    We have set up this section to help you better navigate the web site for Tools and information you may need to have the most successful Infection Prevention effort.

    For some reason Public Health and Healthcare in the U.S. have NOT successfully integrated an approach to Infection Prevention and treatment to adequately protect the public from preventable infectious diseases. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure has languished on our for profit health care system, while traditional Public Health continues to promote the same annual viral messaging obtaining the same results (the definition of insanity). Who wants to be sick again? None of us! Infectious disease creates havoc in our daily routines. Yes EVERY family has suffered through it, but who wants to continue this pattern if there is a solution? Traditional public health and school curriculum do not teach Hand Awareness, resulting in many un-needed illnesses and absences due to infectious diseases.

    The mission of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps is to protect, promote, and advance the health and safety of the United States. According to the PHSCC, this mission is achieved through rapid and effective response to public health needs, leadership and excellence in public health practices, and advancement of public health science. Public Health has its hands full trying to prevent, promote and protect with their staff have become bogged down trying to keep up with the events. This is where our Infection Prevention program fits in to enable them to teach newer concepts for more effective infection prevention.

    There are consistent principles taught across all of the Infection Prevention programs that those in Public Health may use to teach Infection Prevention while you are researching the cause of the outbreak. We would like to collaborate with your state and local departments to improve Public Health. Please contact us at Handquarters for more information.
