PPE preparation for PT clinical education experiences

The health and wellness of our students, faculty, and staff is a primary point of focus this semester. In PT Education, a dedicated team of faculty and staff came together to procure personal protective equipment (PPE) for 192 DPT students and the faculty members and lab instructors teaching clinical skills labs for the Fall 2020 semester. The necessary equipment includes roughly 220 eye goggles and face shields and 10,000 surgical masks.

In addition, student education materials illustrating correct infection control and the PPE procedures required in face-to-face and clinical education environments were curated or created. Students submitted video assignments demonstrating competency of these practices.
Preparations also included the organization and execution of PPE pick-up drive-throughs on both the Omaha and Kearney campuses over a two-day period.
