Infection Prevention and Control 2016

With the current threat of infectious diseases, our greatest weapon is knowledge. However, knowledge gained through research and the information that is ultimately published has little purpose without an avenue to inspire learning and discussion of such topics.  Although traditional publication avenues makes the information available to a large audience, its ability to incite change is limited.

Conferences, such as Infection Prevention and Control 2016, aim to address this by creating an immersive experience where researchers, clinicians, policy leaders, and stakeholders in the infection control community can come together to not only learn about the latest findings, but to foster relationships and discuss future collaborations.  Presented by Knowlex, the conference will welcome 300 infection experts from across the United Kingdom for a day of industry best practice workshops, poster viewings and an exhibition showcasing the latest innovations within the industry. Topics will include:

  • The Economics of Antimicrobial Resistance
  • Antibiotic resistance and the work of the AMR Review Team
  • NICE Quality standards
  • MRSA
  • difficile
  • Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteraceae
  • Sepsis
  • Legionella
  • Hand Hygiene is proud to be a sponsor of the Infection Prevention and Control 2016 Conference and will provide coverage of the event. One of our lead authors, Niall Wallace of Infonaut Inc. will be attending the conference as a delegate and will be ready to talk about the great work that Infonaut is conducting within hospitals in the United States and Canada.
