International Infection Prevention & Control Week

19 October 2015


This is International Infection Prevention and Control Week (October 19th to 23rd 2015)

The Infection Prevention and Control Team at CUH would like to take the opportunity to promote both awareness and effective Infection Prevention and Control practices throughout the CUH hospitals. 

During International Infection Control Week we will be sending out a daily internal memo/email highlighting a different subject relating to infection control.  The purpose of these include:

  • To create awareness and knowledge of the role of the Infection Control Team
  • To continue to promote hand hygiene
  • Education and update on new and emerging infections specifically those related to the healthcare setting
