Long-term care facilities have only recently begun to receive attention in the area of infection control. A training program was developed in Nebraska to help supply practitioners with knowledge and techniques designed specifically for the long-term care environment. This program's success led to its implementation in other regions. The regional extensions of the program were designed to operate with independent faculty but standardized course materials.
