IPAC Canada Central East Ontario and Public Health Ontario Education Day – Crisis Alert – IPAC Needed!
“When a crisis happens often people don’t realize the implications for Infection Prevention & Control (IPAC) or what steps to take”
More and more, infection prevention and control (IPAC) lapses are featured in the news. Many people do not realize the IPAC implications of environmental events such as water leaks, or common procedures like blood glucose testing. While this education day features an array of  presenters, including from Public Health Ontario, and topics from across the spectrum of health care -  hospital, dialysis, dental, community, paramedic, non-acute care, and personal service settings, the real-life situations discussed and lessons learned are very applicable across settings. Participants will learn how to assess the risks in their organizations to enhance their preparedness for the next emergency – big or small.


Anyone with an interest in reducing IPAC risks from events and procedures including health care, public health, and personal service workers and infection control professionals in hospitals, long-term care, retirement homes, public health units, dental offices, First Response, government, community clinics, and related industry partners.
