Infection Prevention and Control Conference
Preventing infections has never been more important. Where antibiotics can be bought for use without a prescription, antibiotic resistance is accelerated by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics, as well as poor infection prevention and control. New resistance mechanisms threaten our ability to treat common infectious diseases such as pneumonia and blood poisoning, which become harder, and sometimes impossible to treat as antibiotics become less effective. Experts predict that if current trends continue, 10 million people globally will die every year from anti-biotic resistant infections.
E. coli infections represent over 65% of gram-negative infections, killed more than 5,500 patients in 2017, costing the NHS approximately £2.3 billion. Targeting preventable infections such as E. coli can help surgeries and care homes become safer for patients and reduce the need for antibiotics, therefore reducing the opportunity for infections to develop a resistance to them. In 2016, the government announced plans to prevent infection by halve the number of gram-negative bloodstream infections by 2020 and reward CCGs for improvements in reducing infection rates with a new £45 million quality premium.
Now in its fifth year, the Infection Prevention Control Conference is gaining a reputation as an inspirational and empowering event offering ideas for innovation in improving Infection control within healthcare. This conference will present case studies and initiatives from NHS trusts that are on track to meet the government’s national ambitions.
Join us for the Infection Prevention and Control Conference where leading experts will discuss the latest approaches to controlling and reducing the spread of dangerous infections. Learn how infection rates can be cut with better hygiene and improved patient care in hospitals, surgeries and care homes. Discover the latest innovations in technology and how they are improving outcomes in infection prevention.
