Infection prevention and control (IP&C) activities protect patients, residents, clients and ourselves from acquiring health care-associated infections. These infections increase hospital lengths of stay, cause patient health complications and may even result in death.
The IP&C world continues to change. There are new and emerging infectious diseases and an increase in antibiotic resistant organisms. IP&C practices are continually evolving and there may have been advancements over the years.
We’ve compiled several resources to help you stay on top of best practices in IP&C, including an interactive online learning module.
Access our IP&C online learning module by signing in to MyCARNA and clicking Resources>Learning Modules.
Visit bbfeab.ca for modules, posters and more to help you and your organization prevent blood or body fluid exposures (BBFE) in your workplace and learn what to do if you, or one of your colleagues became exposed.
