The aim of the Infection Prevention and Control in Residential Aged Care Facilities Workshop is to work with participants to establish a greater understanding of the IPC Lead role and responsibilities at both national and organisation levels.

The workshop is targeted at those nurses who are new or experienced in the IPC Lead role, those responsible for clinical governance within their organisation, educators, aged care providers, quality assessors and those who may be seeking to introduce the
IPC Lead program into the home care service setting.
