NZ Acute Care

Infection prevention and control (IPC) in the acute care setting is intensely diverse, requiring multiple resources to support the sector. New Zealand health care is governed by Ngā Paerewa Health and disability services standard, but also relies on international and joint Australian/New Zealand Standards to underpin the quality and reliability of services.

The following page of IPC acute care resources aim to guide, support, and inform acute care providers, healthcare workers, patients, visitors and the broader community.

Note: Resources shared across all health care settings are in the collaborative resource pages in accordance with country or region.
