Please join us for the ACIPC / TIPCU Infection Control Study Day

ACIPC Members $20 / Non Members $40 

The Australasian College for Infection Prevention and Control in partnership with Tasmanian Infection Prevention and Control will present a full day education event on the 5th September 2019 in Launceston. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about locally relevant issues and to network with peers.



JOIN AUSTRALASIA’S PEAK IPC BODY. Membership to the College provides an opportunity to influence practice by discussing ideas, and projects and supporting each other through the Special Interest Groups and Infexion Connexion. The diversity of our members means the College is able to contribute to the vision of helping to improve, strengthen and support infection prevention and control, provide essential educational material and tools and, to share experience and expertise amongst those in developing countries and poorly resourced environments.



Please allow for one day for admin to activate your membership before you claim the discounted fee for education events.
