International Infection Prevention Week Puts Critical Safety Issues Into Spotlight

By on 1:02 PM

International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW) is underway, and it should serve as another opportunity to focus on the importance infection prevention plays in improving patient safety.

For infection preventionists across the world, IIPW, which takes place October 18-24, is also the week to stress the importance of an infection prevention program that promotes patient safety in the infection prevention arena.

The 2015 theme for IIPW is "Promoting engagement between patients, visitors, and healthcare professionals around infection prevention."

IIPW was established in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.
