Cardinal Health Infection Control Scholarship

Have you initiated a successful infection control strategy or would like to develop or implement one? If so, Cardinal Health want to recognise your excellence.

With support from ACIPC, the Cardinal Health Infection Control Scholarship has been designed to encourage Australian and New Zealand healthcare professionals with an interest in infection control, to share their successes and innovations in infection control and receive support for further work in this area. The scholarship is to support critical infection control projects to ultimately enhance patient safety and assist best practice procedures and work place outcomes.
