Infection prevention and control has become one of the prime concerns in healthcare owing to an increased awareness of patient safety and the considerable burden of healthcare-associated infections. Invasive devices, poor postoperative status, staff negligence and lack of standardized sterilization & decontamination of surgical instruments procedures are some of the major challenges in preventing infections in healthcare facilities.
With ever increasing operational costs, it is very important for healthcare providers to minimize and eliminate the costs associated with Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). The NICE guidelines are constantly being reviewed by NHS as well as Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure adherence to best practices by all commissioning groups.
MnM conferences are putting together a unique platform to address challenges of preventing health care associated infections. At the Infection Control: Sterilization and Decontamination in Healthcare Conference on London on 25th and 26th of February, 2016, leading industry experts will gather to discuss strategies, technologies and updates on guidelines by regulators on infection prevention and control.
