Project Firstline

The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) Communicable Disease Service (CDS) is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Project Firstline, a national initiative designed to provide trainings and additional education and tools regarding infection prevention and control practices to frontline healthcare workers. The goal is to provide foundational knowledge of infection prevention and control measures and emphasize the importance of implementing these protocols throughout the workday to ensure best practice in healthcare settings. This initiative aims to help every healthcare worker gain confidence to apply infection prevention and control principles in their work setting to protect themselves, their patients and the community from infectious disease threats.  

Training and educational tools and resources will be provided to healthcare workers based on practices that prevent the spread of infectious disease, including hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), environmental cleaning and more.
