Advocacy Toolkit

Be a Voice for Infection Prevention in your state with this advocacy toolkit

The increasing government focus on quality of care for patients provides an excellent opportunity for infection preventionists to share their expertise with policymakers. With the help of the Greater St. Louis Chapter, APIC has developed a state legislative advocacy toolkit to guide you in educating policymakers about how infection preventionists improve healthcare in their communities.

The VIP toolkit includes:

  • Tips for planning a legislative visit
  • Tips for deciding which legislators to meet with
  • Tips for preparing materials
  • Sample planning timeline
  • Sample meeting request letters
  • Sample talking points
  • Sample follow-up letters
