PHO Grand Rounds: Have We Learned Anything?: The Infection Control Resource Team (ICRT) Story
Tuesday, August 30, 2016 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm
Venue: By webinar only
Infectious Diseases
City: Toronto
Type: PHO Grand Rounds
Format: Webinar

​Note: This is an open invitation, and may be forwarded to interested parties.

Infection Control Resource Teams (ICRT) were initially created to address Clostridium difficile in acute care facilities back in 2008. Since then, PHO has extended its reach to any health care facilities experiencing outbreak management issues. From the multiple ICRT visits, many lessons have been learned which have allowed PHO to improve the way they address ICRT requests and has also led to practice improvements.  This presentation will summarize the processes used by the ICRT as well as lessons learned over the years.

Presenter: Isabelle Guerreiro
