Executing an Infection Control Community Health Teaching Project (CTE)


Students will deliver their "Infection Control Community Health teaching Project" to the chosen community. Students will also learn about Blood-borne pathogens. In this lesson, notebooks, PowerPoint's, videos and collaboration logs that students have compiled to complete the final project will be presented.


In this lesson students will continue to learn about pathogens, 'bloodborne pathogens that transmit diseases and are a potential risk for the healthcare worker. “Bloodborne Pathogens" means pathogenic microorganisms that are present in human blood and can cause disease in humans. Students will use all of the information that they have acquired and teach the public about safe practices to decrease infections and share it with the community through their projects by executing an infection control community health teaching project.

In the last lesson, students performed a needs assessment which they will use to plan and implement their infection control community health teaching project. Students will utilize resources such as rubrics, reflections forms, planning forms and management logs to keep participants of group accountable to assist with their planning to execute the project. By the end of the lesson students will be ready to execute their teaching project to the community.

Note to Instructor: Pictures are included at the end of the lesson to show some of the lessons that were implemented and taught in the community.
