CDC to Hold Q&A Sessions on ASC-8

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will conduct two question-and-answer sessions for ASCs that are reporting healthcare personnel influenza vaccination summary data through the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). During these sessions, subject matter experts from the CDC will answer questions on the data collection and reporting of healthcare personnel influenza vaccination summary data. These sessions will occur on:

  • Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 2-3 PM ET
  • Monday, March 21, 2016 from 2-3 PM ET

To register for one of these sessions, visit the CDC web site. Facilities only need to register for one of the two question-and-answer sessions. If several individuals at one facility would like to attend a session, it is recommended that they call in using only one phone line. Prior to the question-and-answer sessions, facilities are encouraged to review training materials, including webinar slides and frequently asked questions, that are offered on the CDC web site.

For those unable to participate in these sessions, a transcript and recording will be available within one to two weeks after each session.
