Infection Prevention and Control Standards

$0.00 CAD $100.00 CAD

For use within Canada
Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Accreditation Canada are providing complimentary access to a selection of resources to fight COVID-19. 
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
