Infection Prevention Control 2022

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 Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program improves compliance at all levels throughout the organization via a comprehensive approach built to address the most critical issues impacting hand hygiene compliance.
During this workshop we will focus on the importance of providing hand hygiene products formulated in a manner that creates gentler solutions, hence a preferred user experience. Eliminating aggressive products that dry out, crack, irritate, or result in contact dermatitis is fundamental to any program so that the products themselves aren’t becoming deterrents to hand hygiene compliance. Acceptance = Compliance = Lower HCAIs.
Additional topics to be discussed include our Behavior Modification Program, which utilizes behavioral science to drive hand hygiene compliance, & our innovative Point of Care (POC) tools. In order to achieve compliance at all WHO 5 Moments, solutions beyond wall mounted dispensers to fill these compliance gaps are necessary. POC tools allow for access to product within the workflow, centered on direct patient care, which puts clinicians in the best possible position to be compliant.
Hand hygiene compliance is fundamental to delivering quality patient care & to creating the safest environment for patients & staff. With the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program, you’ll be able to incorporate best practices with easy to implement innovative solutions developed to address your challenges & achieve these goals.

Learning from the experience of using innovative technology to maximise IPC clinical workflows during the COVID pandemic, and how this is driving best practice for future IPC strategies.

(INVITED)

Julia Taylor has been invited.

Traditional methods of managing patient-bed-hygiene present huge time, logistical, employee-safety, infection-control and compliance challenges, for hospitals (manual-handling procedures in the bed-washing-process; dealing with potential contamination; patient-bed drying-time; overall co-ordination of bed-reprocessing, etc). This workshop will help signpost the pathway to OSKA’s 100/100 vision – 100% clean, 100% of the time - for hospital facilities teams, moving towards an automation-supported ‘total-bed-management’ approach, whilst promoting a gold standard for IPC, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
