    Session Description

    Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are an urgent health care and public health priority with significant consequences for morbidity, mortality and health care costs. New technologies, including adding antimicrobial agents to hospital furnishings and interiors are being promoted to help address this pressing problem. The evidence supporting both the efficacy and safety of these new technologies is insufficient and in some instances, of low quality. In this webinar, learn about Health Care Without Harm's comprehensive analysis of the evidence on the safety and efficacy of these products. Recommendations for health care clinicians, administrators and purchasers will be discussed, as well as recommendations for furniture and chemical manufacturers. The need for a critical research agenda to address significant data gaps also will be presented. Also hear from experts in a hospital system that has introduced an evidence-based evaluation of antimicrobials, and restricted their use in certain applications.

    Learning Objectives

    • Describe the applications of antimicrobials in furnishings in the health care setting
    • Understand the health and environmental concerns associated with antimicrobials in furnishings and analyze gaps in knowledge related to their safety, efficacy and clinical performance
    • Understand the importance of a systems approach in HAI prevention and the role that antimicrobials in furnishings may play in a larger systems approach
    • Describe the opportunities for reducing unnecessary antimicrobial use

    Program Introduction

    This webinar-based, four-part course will take the participants through the process of establishing a Strategic Energy Master Planning (SEMP) program within their organizations. We will explore the creation of a strong foundation for strategic investment in energy and water projects, including gathering baseline energy data and estimating program potential based on that data.

    The course will include "homework" assignments on key topics. Each class is a prerequisite for the following class.

    With the course material and completed assignments in hand, participants will be prepared to lead their organizations in the development of a plan designed to reduce energy costs and bring down carbon footprints.

    * The course will include "homework" assignments on key topics. Each class is a prerequisite for the following class.
    * Educational credits are available for this course. Class size is limited.

    Program Details

    Course One: Getting Started and Establishing the SEMP Program, Tuesday June 7 from 6:30 – 8:00 am EST

    The course will start with an overview of strategic energy planning in a health care organization - and why it matters. The discussion will then cover the creation of a strong foundation for strategic investment in energy and water projects. This includes gathering baseline energy data - and then estimating program potential based on that data. The second, and more important, base building activity is to spend time communicating with key stakeholders. Fortunately, there is a wealth of information and data that can be used to create buy-in for a sustained focus on energy.
    This course will allow participants to
    • Learn central arguments (and initial data) that demonstrate the Objectives power of a SEMP (Strategic Energy Master Plan) program – providing answers to the core question of why energy projects are smart investments.
    • Obtain information to be used immediately to start building interest in the idea among colleagues and within the executive management team.
    • Understand the baseline energy data that needs to be gathered – and straightforward tools for analyzing the impact of the organization's energy use. Data to establish the investment potential – in terms of both environmental impact and financial savings.
    • Learn about communicating across the organization, and the benefits of setting-up an “energy team."

    Course Two: Building the Case for Each Energy Project and Creating a Multi-Year Funding Stream, Tuesday June 14th 6:30 – 8:00 a.m EST

    There's no debate about one key point – proposed projects that have a poor “return-on-investment" will go nowhere. Even a project with good financial prospects can struggle to get approval when the engineering and finance teams are not speaking the same language. Learn how to move beyond this barrier!
    Without a SEMP program in place, energy project proposals will always vie for funding with other proposed projects during the annual CAPEX budget process. This discussion describes a variety of approaches for overcoming that barrier – with the goal of creating an on-going stream of funding for sustained multi-year investment.
    This course will help participants to
    • Provide facility engineering teams with information about the financial criteria that are important to CFOs and finance teams.
    • Gather ideas for developing proposal buy-in from this key stakeholder group.
    • Obtain ideas for new approaches for setting aside internal funds for energy projects – including example of organizations within the health care industry that have adopted these ideas.
    • Discover where to look for external funding.
    Course Three: Selecting the Initial Projects and Building on Success: Developing a Long Term Project Pipeline, Tuesday June 21st from 6:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. EST
    Many health care organizations will accept the idea that a SEMP program makes sense. The challenge is to turn that into a funded, multi-year commitment. To get there, selecting the right initial projects is critical. Second only to creating a sustained funding stream, the development of a well-considered project pipeline is an essential component to building a successful SEMP program. The core goal is to create a lightweight selection process that will identify projects that fit an agreed upon set of decision criteria.
    This course will
    • Offer different approaches to thinking about selecting projects and multi year commitments based on the organization's existing point-of-view about energy projects.
    • Provide facility teams with specific ideas and examples of areas where there are likely to be early wins.
    • Learn the essential criteria and potential evaluation methodologies, for deciding whether or not a project should be included in the project pipeline. Emphasis is placed on developing a track record of success.
    Course Four: Putting it All Together (Year 1) and Keeping the Momentum (Year 2 & Beyond), Tuesday June 28th from 6:30 – 8 a.m. EST
    Using a SEMP document outline as a focal point for discussion, we will focus on the essential ingredients that need to come together in the 1st year of a SEMP program. With the first year of SEMP work in the rear view mirror, that foundational effort is ready to be honed into a smooth, established organizational process. The focus switches from getting the program launched to meeting long-term goals - while keeping track of the progress and performance of projects underway. The SEMP is a “living" plan that should be updated on a regular basis.
    Upon completing this course, you will:
    • Have a Objectives checklist of the key activities that should occur in the first year - and an outline for a SEMP Plan document that can be tailored to fit their organization.
    • Come away with a clear set of activities that need attention as the SEMP program matures. This includes the “nut-and-bolts" of obtaining and presenting project performance data, and identifying new energy projects. The work will also involve keeping an eye on innovation and looking at where other organizations are investing.
