Collaborations

Nursing Times Collaboration

Over the course of this year, IPS has worked with the Nursing Times (NT) to undertake a number of activities and as a result is able to reach all nurses working in health care. The actions have included Twitter messages, judging of NT infection prevention awards and in the Nursing Times journal a 60 seconds interview with the IPS President, an IPS position statement on the Keogh Report and special journal edition focused on the importance of hand hygiene.

OneTogether: Surgical Site Infection Prevention Resources

OneTogether is a partnership between leading professional organisations with an interest in the prevention of surgical site infections (SSI).  Its mission is to promote and support the spread and adoption of best practice to prevent SSIs across the surgical patient pathway.  We encourage you to consider implementing the OneTogether assessment toolkit within your facility to help identify areas for improvement in the surgical pathway.  We have developed other resources to support quality improvement in infection prevention practice across the surgical pathway.
