Construction, renovation, maintenance and design (CRMD)

In construction, renovation, maintenance and design (CRMD) projects, health care facilities need to consider how and when to incorporate infection prevention and control (IPAC) measures to reduce potential health care-associated infections. The CRMD resources below can assist infection prevention and control professionals (ICPs) to navigate a CRMD project through all three phases:

The resources include checklists, guides, information sheets and planners; some of which can be used in more than one of the three phases. They can be modified and adapted for use within the organization and are designed for use with the appropriate CSA standard. For each phase there is a presentation that provides background information for the ICP. For more information or guidance for using these tools contact your  Regional IPAC Office
