Why Join as an Individual?

What will Membership give you?

Join the Infection Prevention Society, one of the UK and Ireland’s foremost professional organisations with growing international membership.

The Infection Prevention Society is an independent charity with a 2,000 strong member network. Our vision is that no person is harmed by a preventable infection. We strive to fulfil our vision by informing, promoting and sustaining expert infection prevention policy and practice where care is delivered at local, national, and international level.

Our commitment to communicate with and educate clinical professionals and the public enables us to play a central role in making treatment and care safer for patients and their relatives.

Our members have access to:

Research and Development
We fund and support research and development to determine what works best, how it should be implemented, the impact on patients’ lives, and the cost of healthcare. Members receive updates and information about current topical issues in infection prevention and control through the use of social media.

Support
We provide support to the countries governments in developing policy and assist with advice on technical aspects for new and existing standards. Members of the Society have access to grants and travel awards to extend their professional knowledge and expertise.

Network
Our membership creates a large professional network through which we communicate best practice, an online discussion forum. The Society works collaboratively with other professional societies and has strong links with national and international organisations working in the field of infection and patient safety.

Resources
Members receive the Journal of Infection Prevention bimonthly and have access to past issues, as well as a weekly eDigest highlighting current news and events. Members have opportunities to collaborate through our 14 branches and Special Interest Groups and participate in national and international working groups.
