Infection Prevention Society

Infection Prevention in Care and at Home

Date: 30 September 2018
Time: 10:00 until 17:00
Length: 1 day
Venue: Scottish Event Campus, Exhibition Way, G3 8YW, Glasgow

This one-day conference is tailored for those who work providing services for people in care and those receiving care at home. The programme will focus on achieving excellence in infection prevention practice to reduce the risk of infections for this vulnerable population. Infection prevention is high on the agenda for every healthcare organisation and finding expert affordable training for you and your team can be problematic. However, the Infection Prevention Society is offering this study day which will discuss some of the 21st century challenges we face in care homes and care at home looking at the latest evidence and applications for practice. This day is relevant for all staff and in particular those senior staff with the accountability for infection prevention within the organisation.
