As flu season approaches, churches can play a key role in preventing the spread of infection.
"Spread the Word, Not the Germs: A Toolkit for Faith Communities" is a feature article in the new Journal of Christian Nursing, October – December 2011. A volunteer workgroup of public health personnel and parish nurses in Wisconsin collaborated to create a 224-page toolkit to prepare congregations for health emergencies and prevent the spread of disease. The article reports on the pilot study of the toolkit.
Stay healthy and share the comprehensive resources in the toolkit, Infection Control and Emergency Preparedness Toolkit for the Faith Community. This free toolkit is available for churches and parishes to download here.
