Aged Care IPC Community of Practice

ACIPC is excited to announce the establishment of an Aged Care IPC Community of Practice 

Our new community of practice  will feature:  

  • Resources: a ‘one stop shop’ location to up-to-date, credible IPC information and resources relevant to mandates and recommendations in the aged care sector.  
  • Aged Care Connexion: like the Infexion Connexion forum, but this online forum is directed specifically at the aged care sector. 
  • Webinars: free bi-monthly web-based interactive IPC webinars, targeted to the aged care sector. 

ACIPC recognises the benefits of peer collaboration. The ACIPC Aged Care Community of Practice aims to strengthen collaborations and IPC knowledge and practice across the industry. 

All infection prevention and control (IPC) leads, aged care IPC consultants/specialists, public health, and those involved with IPC in aged care are warmly invited to utilise the resources, link in, join discussions on the forum, and attend the bi-monthly live interactive webinars.  

Note: Aged Care IPC Leads who have completed the ACIPC Foundations IPC Course are automatically gifted an ongoing ACIPC Educational Membership. The membership enables access to website educational material and the Aged Care Infexion and Infexion Conexion. Educational members are asked to ensure their contact details are correct with the College.
