From the President

A very big welcome to 2015 - I hope that you have had a wonderful and restful break over the Christmas period.

As usual the health system throws up challenges everyday and as ICP's we are always up for the challenge.

We start the year with an program of member education events including journal club meetings, sharps webinar series - remember all you need is a phone for the webinars.

Planning is well underway for this years conference in Hobart with the keynote speakers now confirmed. Last year's conference was an outstanding success and we are looking forward to a similar result at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in November.

There is no doubt that we face many and varied challenges in the areas of antibiotic resistance, infectious disease, compliance with basic hand hygiene and environmental cleaning, not to mention the impact of international travel.

Our College is well regarded by our peers and policy makers so I would say to everyone no matter where you are practising to be confident in your role and keep patient safety as the foundation for everything that you do.
 

Cheers
 
Belinda
