Infection Prevention and Control Standards

Infection Prevention and Control Standards

$100.00 CAD

For use within Canada
Accreditation Canada's Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Standards provide a framework to plan, implement, and evaluate an effective IPC program based on evidence and best practices in the field. The literature shows that well-designed IPC programs are cost-effective because they reduce health care-associated infections, shorten the length of hospital stays, and decrease the cost of treating health care-associated infections.

The Accreditation Canada standards outline the key routine practices and additional precautions necessary for an effective IPC program, including:

  • Point-of-care risk assessment
  • Hand hygiene
  • Aseptic techniques
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Cleaning and disinfection of the physical environment
  • Handling waste and linen

Promoting a collaborative approach to protecting the safety of clients and staff, the Infection Prevention and Control Standards contain the following sections:

  • Planning and Developing the IPC Program
  • Implementing the IPC Program 
  • Evaluating the Impact of the IPC Program
If you are part of an assessment program (such as Qmentum) with Accreditation Canada, NIAZ, IQG or IQMH, your assessment body will provide you with new assessment standards prior to those standards being incorporated into your program and used for surveys or assessment purposes. For information on assessment standards, or to obtain the version specific to your program, please contact your assessment provider.

Standards purchased online are delivered as printable PDF downloads. If you would like a copy printed and shipped to you, please email publications@healthstandards.org
