Infection Prevention & Control

This program area focuses on excellence in infection prevention and control practices in the province of Newfoundland Labrador. This will be accomplished, in collaboration with the Provincial Infection Control group (PIC-NL), by maximizing coordination and integration of activities related to health care associated infections, infection prevention and control, and surveillance using an evidence-based approach.

This is achieved by:

  • Fostering collaboration between the Regional Health Authorities on infection prevention and control issues;
  • Developing relevant policy and guidelines;
  • Providing knowledge to guide investigation or practices (i.e. best practice guidelines); and
  • Advocating on behalf of the community of practice for appropriate and sustainable resources
