Infection Prevention & Control Win at NIPEC Conference

25/01/2013

Our Trust was declared a winner at the recent Northern Ireland Practice & Education Council for Nursing & Midwifery (NIPEC) Conference for their involvement in the Infection Prevention and Control Pocket Manual.

 

Staff Nurse Victoria Herron from the Regional Acquired Brain Injury Unit (RABIU), presented on the day of the Conference and went on to win the ‘Education’ Category on behalf of the nursing team in RABIU.

 

The manual was developed by the nursing staff in RABIU along with infection control nurses as a tool for all staff to have information in relation to infection control at hand for ease of access and reference. It is currently being piloted at the Regional Acquired Brain Injury Unit. For further information about the manual contact Sister Caroline Malone RABIU at caroline.malone@belfasttrust.hscni.net
