COVID-19 pandemic represents an issue for the clinical governance of public health. Staff formation is crucial in terms of clinical risk management. We analysed the impact of an intensive formation program on contagion spread, across healthcare operators in the ULSS 5 Polesana. Workers who adequately attended formation courses, resulted in less positivity to Sars-CoV-2 compared to those from other institutions. We hypothesized that formation of healthcare personnel could be highly effective to control professional Sars-CoV-2 infections.
