Using the Healthcare Improvement Scotland infection prevention and control standards to support your practice

Care staff, managers and providers are invited to join us for webinars to explore how implementation of the HIS IPC standards can support good practice in care homes and other adult social care services.

  • Provide an opportunity to explore an individual standard and the ways in which this is being met or can be met.
  • Provide an opportunity for a practice discussion about the barriers that might prevent implementation and to share learning and ideas that might help you to meet the standards.

The webinars will include:

  • A short presentation to highlight how the standards will be used to support the quality framework/core IPC assurance and quality indicator.
  • A breakout activity to explore one standard in more detail and to share learning, solutions and ideas.
