Scenario-Based Education for Environmental Services & Infection Control
Infection Prevention and Control staff and the Environmental Services team are both crucial to the development and implementation of a facility IPAC Program. However, for a variety of reasons, they may not always be able to create a smooth “intersection” of their respective roles. Enter IPAC Intersections – a workshop first introduced last fall at the public health unit education days. At this workshop, staff from both departments will work through real-life scenarios developed from experience and feedback shared by our Environmental Services Forum attendees and from our IPAC Review Program visits in Long Term Care Homes. In order to maximize resources, IPAC Intersections has been paired with our regular Environmental Services Forum and will be in three locations this spring.
- Recognize and discuss areas where roles “intersect”
- Discover opportunities for collaboration to maximize limited resources
- Learn about and share effective communication vehicles between ES & IPAC
- Receive a scenario workbook that can be used to create “intersections” and training suited to their individual facilities
