Provincial review of infection prevention and control

Description

Following a situation concerning inadequate sterilization of surgical instruments at an Alberta hospital, in March 2007 the Minister of Alberta Health and Wellness asked regional health authorities, the Alberta Cancer Board, and the health professional regulatory bodies to review and advise him on their infection prevention and control (IPC) policies, programs and systems. This report of the provincial review outlines the importance of IPC in the context of Alberta's health system and what was learned about the current state of IPC in Alberta. It identifies directions for moving forward, including specific actions to strengthen and enhance infection prevention and control across the health system in Alberta.
