Abstract

Research has revealed that inadequate PPE training of healthcare workers can result in self-contamination. An experiment conducted by Hughes and associates showed that the most common error was contamination of the face and forearms during removal of PPE. The CDC has developed guidelines for the selection, donning, and doffing of PPE when caring for patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19. The purpose of this project is to identify barriers that prevent proper use of PPE and to develop a training module that will promote best practice guidelines and standardized procedures. The training module will utilize the Competency Outcome and Performance Based (COPA) framework. The objective of the training module is to increase the safety of healthcare workers and their patients.
