Infection Prevention and Control Champions
For clinicians and managers in adult social care settings.
The Queen’s Nursing Institute has launched a new infection prevention and control (IPC) scheme for nurses and their colleagues working in adult social care settings.
The new IPC Champions Network builds on measures already in place to maintain and continuously improve standards across the care sector.
Lessons learned from the pandemic will be rolled out through the network to help minimise the future spread of infections, including COVID-19 and flu, to protect people living in care homes and receiving home care. The champions will share best practice through a series of virtual meetings, a newsletter and discussion forum.
The Network will is open to frontline social care staff responsible for infection prevention and control in their specific areas or homes.

The new scheme is supported by Chief Nurse for Adult Social Care Deborah Sturdy OBE and backed by a grant from the Department of Health and Social Care.
