Circle of Care (CoC) brings together healthcare workers across all disciplines who have a hand in quality patient outcomes. Our mission is to educate, share evidence based best practices and discuss diverse topics, especially as they pertain to the prevention of Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs).
CoC is actively involved in organizing local and regional collaborative clinical education conferences, with industry organizations such as IAHCSMM, AAMI, AORN, APIC , AST, AHE and many others.
Our goal is to ensure that these esteemed groups collaborate and foster a culture of teamwork that can be taken back to their respective facilities and incorporated into daily clinical practice to create transformational improvements in patient outcomes.
