Practical insights to strengthen infection prevention & control
This conference is endorsed by ACN according to our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Endorsed Course Standards. It has been allocated 7 CPD hours according to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia – Continuing Professional Development Standard.

As the hospital and medical staff are required to comply with updated versions of standard practices, pragmatic and evidence-based approaches are needed to engage all levels of staff. With the recent emergence of multi-resistant organisms such as Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) and Candida auris, effective infection prevention and control practices are more crucial than ever.

The 5th Annual Infection Prevention & Control conference will address how to strengthen communication between clinicians, executives and medical professionals, revisions to the standard 3 requirements, and how to deal with the emergence of multi-resistant organisms.
