The Infection Prevention Society (IPS) North and South London branches would like to invite you to attend their annual conference on Thursday, 3rd May 2018 at the Kia Oval. The event features prominent speakers within infection prevention who will explore ‘infection dilemmas’, focusing on new approaches to old problems.  The programme is wide ranging including presentations on a multiple award winning new surveillance strategy; a hospital’s experience of the newly emerging dual carbapenemase producing strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae;  the  outcomes and innovations of the Royal College of Nursing Collaborative work on glove use; CAUTI’s and the Health Innovation Network as well as sessions which will explore potential solutions to the quandaries of surface decontamination, source isolation resource and culture and human behaviours.  The day will be opened by Neil Wigglesworth, IPS President.

This day will be of interest to infection prevention and control practitioners, public health practitioners, Directors of Infection Prevention and Control, matrons/team leaders, managers of nursing and residential homes, link nurses in the community, inpatient and residential settings, staff and district nurses, adult and social care staff, student nurses and domestic/house keeper supervisors. This list does not exclude any other healthcare professional with an interest in preventing and controlling infection.

As well as a varied programme there will also be an exhibition with a wide range of companies bringing new and innovative products to the market. This event offers valuable learning and an ideal opportunity to socialise and network with other professionals.”
