The Infection Prevention Society (IPS), in partnership with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has launched a revised Infection Prevention and Control Commissioning Toolkit. The development and use of the toolkit is supported by NHS England and provides a series of indicators that can be used by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and regulators to focus on preventing healthcare associated infections (HAI) in healthcare settings. Developed by members of the IPS Commissioning Group and RCN, the toolkit highlights the importance of preventing and controlling healthcare infection in general and specifically pneumonia, urinary tract infections and sepsis. A press statement is also available.
