Project Director(s)

Barbara Materna

The Respiratory Program Toolkit is designed to assist California hospital respirator program administrators to prevent infectious disease in health care workers by using pilot-tested strategies to improve their programs' effectiveness. The Occupational Health Branch in the California Department of Public Health created the toolkit with funding from the NIOSH National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory and in collaboration with a number of partners.
