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. Without urgent action, we are heading for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries can once again kill.
Salford Professional Development are delighted to be gaining a reputation for “truly inspirational” health and social care conferences. The sixth annual Infection Prevention Control Conference provide a clear understanding of the UK 5-year action plan for antimicrobial resistance 2019 to 2024, with a focus on reducing need for, and unintentional exposure to, antimicrobials, optimising use of antimicrobials, and investing in innovation, supply and access. The conference will also explore best practices examples of system wide improvements in sepsis outcomes, reducing healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial stewardship.
Delegate feedback from our last five Infection Prevention Control Conferences includes:
"Very informative day. Learnt about the fantastic work others are doing and how I could improve the service to my clients"
“It was really beneficial to learn about current initiatives in place across the nation”
“The programme was really relevant and provided potential solutions to daily challenges within my department”
" I thoroughly enjoyed the event, the speakers were knowledgeable and content good"
"Excellent, informative and engaging event. All HVs and midwives should attend"
Join us for our annual the Infection Prevention and Control Conference where leading experts will discuss the latest approaches to controlling and reducing the spread of dangerous infections. Hear case studies examples on how infection rates have been reduced and network with likeminded healthcare professionals.
