Professional Practice

Infection Prevention Best PracticeAll practitioners are expected to deliver care based on the best available evidence or best practice.

Practitioners must ensure any advice given is evidence or best practice based. This section of the website helps direct to available information and resources to help ensure that practitioners maintain the highest levels of professional practice in relation to infection prevention and control.

Keep your skills and knowledge up to date

Regulators of health and social care professionals, e.g. the NMC and GMC require that practitioners have the knowledge and skills for safe and effective practice when working without direct supervision and to recognise and work within the limits of competence.

It is therefore important to keep knowledge and skills up to date throughout your working life and taking part in appropriate learning and practice activities that maintain and develop competence and performance is supported by IPS.

This section will help practitioners achieve their requirements. Material will continue to develop so make sure you keep coming back.
