​Core Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) Practices​ ​​

This page is a collection of resources and tools meant to support your understanding of Core IPC practices. These are fundamental practices that should be present in Healthcare Facilities (HCF) to provide safe patient care and for the protection of Healthcare Providers (HCP). Infection Preventionists (IP), or other personnel tasked a similar role, should master their understanding of these practices. This knowledge will assist you in completing onsite IPC assessments.
