The Ahepan Summer 2020 - 12

The training program includes the creation of a training video and webinar to
educate HCWs on standard and transmission-based precautions. Also, the deployment of CLEO personnel to COVID-19 centers to train HCWs in person, starting with
the six COVID-19 centers in Attica and
COVID-19 dedicated hospitals in Greece.
*	 To conduct research into the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of
HCWs around COVID-19 and infection control measures in healthcare
settings in Greece.
The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented in modern history and may represent a turning point in many HCW's
understanding of IPC and public health.
We believe it is vitally important to use
this moment to examine how the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of HCWs in
Greece have been affected by this pandemic, particularly with respect to their
understanding of disease transmission
and their resistance to or acceptance of
control measures in the healthcare settings where they work.
Infection control experts and research
statisticians at CLEO will design, disseminate, collect, and analyze results targeting
HCWs at the COVID-19 primary care centers and COVID-19-dedicated hospitals.
This study will help to describe how HCWs
managed COVID-19 during the pandemic,
which can help both to inform everyday
healthcare practices in Greece as well as
to highlight areas for improvement.
This study may also highlight possible strengths of the healthcare system in
Greece, and help researchers to understand why Greece has, as of the time of
this article, fared better in the pandemic
than other southern European countries
such as Spain and Italy. The results of this
study will be strategically disseminated
to key national partners in order to facilitate a robust response to future epidemic
waves of COVID-19 as well as to other
infectious disease outbreaks.
