This toolkit will assist individuals and organizations with educating healthcare providers and patients about safe injection practices. Any healthcare provider that gives injections (in the form of medication, vaccinations, or other medical procedures) should be aware of safe injection practices. Partners of the Safe Injection Practices Coalition (SIPC) helped to create the materials in this toolkit and distribute these materials throughout their individual organizations.
The materials in this toolkit have broad application among healthcare providers of most specialty types and across all healthcare settings. Within a healthcare setting, these materials can be distributed at staff meetings, incorporated into employee training (i.e., inclusion in Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) bloodborne pathogen training), posted in public areas, linked to internal databases or websites. Outside of the healthcare setting, these materials can be linked to local and state medical boards, highlighted in media outlets, and discussed during public presentations.
This Healthcare Provider Toolkit can be ordered free of charge at CDC-INFO (publication #22-1177). A hard copy of the Healthcare Provider Toolkit is a folder containing one copy of each brochure, poster, printout of the slides, and other helpful One & Only Campaign materials.
