Getting Started

This section is particularly useful if you are new to infection prevention and control, or are looking to implement a new approach, to reduce infections.

You will find information that will outline how to implement a ‘board to ward’ approach that will engage your whole organisation in creating a culture of ‘zero tolerance’ of avoidable infections.

Also of importance is identification of the roles each individual in your organisation can play in reducing infections to provide clean and safe care.

A further resource provided in this section is a link to the new nationally accredited Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Advanced Practitioner Competences which define the levels of knowledge and skill that someone working at an advanced grade, in an IPC team, can bring to the organisation.
