J&J launches online resources for infections

Johnson & Johnson's Advanced Sterilization Products division has launched new online resources as part of International Infection Prevention Week

Johnson & Johnson's (J&J) Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) division has launched new online resources as part of International Infection Prevention Week ( IIPW).

The Infection Prevention Star Campaign, which aims to showcase healthcare professionals who have made a difference in improving patient outcomes through best-in-class work in infection prevention, includes the Facebook page.

This enables healthcare professionals to share how their work creates a safe healthcare environment by preventing or reducing the risk of healthcare-associated infections.

Select stories will be posted to the Facebook page, as well as on the ASP homepage and Twitter, in an effort to educate others also working to promote hygienic hospital practices.

ASP has also launched the Professional Education & Learning Solutions website, with research, standards and regulations online in the field of infectious diseases.

Amber Mitchell, director of Professional Education & Learning Solutions, ASP, said: “ASP is committed to providing customers not only with our advanced infection prevention solutions, but also with the evidence-based knowledge needed to make informed practice decisions and achieve higher standards of worker and patient safety.”

According to J&J, healthcare-associated infections occur in more than two million patients annually, leading to about 90,000 deaths per year.

ASP has produced a public health film raising awareness of the scale of the problem, and encouraging patients and healthcare professionals to take action.
