The IPS annual conference is expected to attract over 1000 professionals in 2014 and we hope you are one of those who take the opportunity to attend.
Provision of an exceptional educational programme each year has led to the development and expansion of the IPS Conference encouraging a larger and more varied audience. The audience is not only growing significantly in numbers, it is also changing in delegate profile and includes DIPC’s, Microbiologists, Antibiotic Pharmacists, Managers as well as nursing leaders in Infection Prevention and Control
With the programme tailored to attract a wide audience there is something for everyone. There will be up to four streams running each day catering for specific areas of interest including: use of invasive devices, Clostridium difficile, use of personal protective equipment, multi-resistant gram negative infections, practice in community settings, sexual health, water borne infections, outbreak management and research.
Outside the dedicated streams there will be inspirational presentations from national and international speakers covering areas such as antimicrobial resistance, leadership, zero tolerance, environmental hygiene, food hygiene and meet the expert sessions.
This year a stream for those new to the specialty will give a basic course in the essentials of infection prevention, educating and encouraging the next generation of Infection Prevention and Control specialists.
Following the success of the Dental and Perioperative Study Days in 2013, these have been incorporated into the main programme on Tuesday to allow main conference delegates to attend as well as allowing those specialising in these areas to attend these sessions only.
We look forward to welcoming you to Infection Prevention 2014.
