    Senior Infection Control Nurse Consultant

    Hello Cate,
    A recent survey conducted by VICNISS showed that about 50% of respondents who did the RPP were the Infection Control team and a very small subset of that team were employee health nurses.
    About 20% were occupational health team.
    The rest was made up by external contractors, staff on a return to work program, nurse unit managers or other senior nurses, a dedicated COVID team and allied health.
    Who to use for this role seemed to depend on a variety of factors of which included size and acuity of the health service and capacity of the IPC team.
