Decontamination in Healthcare Conference
Decontamination is an important factor in preventing hospital-acquired infection in primary and secondary care settings. Failing to decontaminate equipment or the environment may not always be obvious, but it can result in cross-infection and put patients at risk. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) estimates that on any given day in a European hospital, one in eighteen patients has a healthcare-associated infection (HAI). According to a report by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the estimated number of patients in UK acquiring HAIs is approximately 300,000 a year, which costs the NHS approximately £1 billion a year.
In the chancellor's November budget statement, Phillip Hammond pledged £2.8bn towards improving A&E performance, reducing waiting times for patients, and treating more people this winter. The NHS should have sufficient supplies to deal with periods of increased demand however if there are shortages, are national NHS organisations ready to work with hospitals to ensure a steady supply?
Join us for the Decontamination in Healthcare Conference where leading experts from hospitals, academia, and government will discuss the innovations, challenges, and future aspects of infection control, decontamination, and sterilisation.
