Innovate, Integrate, Motivate


Sunday marks the start of the annual IPAC-Canada Conference.  I’m proud to say I’ve been part of the Scientific Committee and this year we’re hosting a conjoint conference with IFIC (International Federation of Infection Control). Innovate, Integrate, Motivate is the theme for the conference and with the topics and speakers that are lined up, I think it’s fair to say that we’re touching upon how we can innovate and improve infection control practices, how we can integrate new practices or ideas into our programs and keep you motivated to want to continue pushing forward and make infection prevention and control a concept not just within healthcare facilities, but a household topic to boot!

If you’re not able to attend the conference there are a couple of ways you can participate.

    1. Follow the conference on Twitter using #IFICIPAC2019. If there is one thing I have learned over the years, is that you can feel like you’ve attended a conference session by following along on Twitter.  

2. Join in on the Webber Training Teleclasses that will be broadcast simultaneously.
 
a. ADAPTING IPAC IN UNCONVENTIONAL SPACES will be presented on Monday, May 27th from 4pm to 5:30pm EST. This panel discussion will include discussions on Design Considerations, Risks and Competing Priorities in Water Management and Emerging Risks in Water in Healthcare.

b.  Adult Learning Styles will be presented on Tuesday, May 28th from 10:50 – 11:50am EST. The speakers for this session will discuss how to apply adult learning principles for effective teaching and the advantages, pitfalls, and lessons learned from high-tech learning and teaching strategies.

c.  One Health – the risks and rewards of loving animals will be presented on Wednesday May 29th from 9:15 – 10:15am EST. If you have a pet, you may be interested in checking this one out!

For those that are attending the conference be sure to drop by the Virox booth to take a selfie with our Space Man and grab a MARS bar for a snack!

Bugging Off!
