IPC 2021
Infection prevention and Control
Learning from Covid19 & AMR

In April 2021, for the first time, the Infection Prevention and Control Annual 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. 2020 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 2021 will therefore include amongst others, outbreak management, improving hand hygiene (and auditing procedures), and decontamination/cleaning protocols. There will still be a strong focus on AMR as well as focusing on GNBSI and the common causes such as UTIs. In 2021 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.
