APIC CEO Katrina Crist Blogs About International Infection Prevention Week

International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW), which takes place Oct. 14-20, 2012 asks healthcare professionals to imagine a safer world through infection prevention. Imagine a healthcare setting where everyone performs appropriate hand hygiene before and after providing patient care. Or a community where every individual uses proper respiratory etiquette by coughing and sneezing into their elbow. Imagine the impact on a global level.

Led by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC), IIPW provides a focal point for infection preventionists, healthcare professionals, consumers, organizations and industry partners to shine a light on infection prevention and its power to save lives.
