Infection Prevention and Control
Learning from Covid-19 & AMR

For the first time, the Infection Prevention and Control Conference will take place over two days. At this conference, NHSE/I will announce the new guidelines for Infection Prevention and Control. We will cover over the two days IPC best practice, which will include elements for community and mental health as well as acute nursing. We will also cover clinical topics such as AMR. In 2020 NHSE/I rolled out their vision of the NHS Long Term Plan for Infection Prevention and Control, with strong themes around AMR and Gram-Negative bloodstream infections. Throughout 2020, and much of 2021, we saw the biggest global pandemic in recent history, COVID19. We will review the lessons learned and re-emphasise the need for effective hand washing and personal hygiene protocols, that quite literally became a life or death necessity.

Following discussions with our partners NHSE/I and PHE, themes for this national meeting will therefore include amongst others, outbreak management, improving hand hygiene (and auditing procedures), and decontamination/cleaning protocols. From the pandemic we learnt much about preventing airborne transmission of infection. There will still be a strong focus on AMR as well as focusing on GNBSI and the common causes such as UTIs. In this national meeting we will revisit the common themes of infection prevention, review current control standards, and celebrate best practice. Our exhibition will showcase the latest innovation and technology available globally. You will be able to network with over 500 healthcare professionals each day. Delegates will be able to choose to attend either or both days.


The Infection Prevention Control Conference will take place at the National Conference Centre in Birmingham United Kingdom.
