Management of communicable infection
It is recognised that implementing guidance for control of communicable pathogens can be challenging, even more so when there is a novel pathogen such as SARS-CoV2. How do we communicate guidance to control and manage these infections when the guidance itself is evolving and changing as quickly as the pathogens themselves? How do we persuade colleagues to follow guidance that may not be evidence based due to the novel nature of the pathogen? How can we combat the potential negative effects of social media can have, especially in the context of ever-changing national advice? And emerging from the pandemic, how do we harness the interest around IPC in addressing the wider context of healthcare acquired infections?
This joint RCPath/HIS webinar will be of interest to all healthcare professionals and healthcare students. It will include a panel of four experts with extensive IPC experience including the recent SARS-CoV2 pandemic, at national and local levels. They will discuss, answer and debate the answers to audience led questions (pre-submitted) on these important issues, with the opportunity to ask questions live to the panel if time allows.
