Navigating the role of IPC Lead

Date and time: Thursday 27 June at 12.00 pm AEST

Presenter: ACIPC IPC Consultant Carrie Spinks


In 2021 we saw the introduction of the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Lead into every residential aged care facility across Australia, as a requirement of accreditation.

The Department of Health and Aged Care provide an outline of general requirements for the role, enabling providers to determine the role based on individual facility need, environment and capability.

The session will provide suggestions for role and task descriptions, how to promote and enable the role and collaborative approaches with facility managers. We will look at templates and resources to guide this process. The floor is open for comments, input and sharing ideas and concerns.
