​Over the past year the Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) Action Teams have made progress on three actions from the IPAC Action Plan: conducting an environmental scan, the creation of a pan-Canadian set of case definitions for surveillance of healthcare associated infections, as well as improving infection prevention and control through the use of strategies known to improve behaviour and culture.

Since the last update, CPSI has engaged an expert Intervention Lead to provide strategic direction and guidance to CPSI regarding the integration of behaviour change to existing and potentially new campaigns.  Over the next year, the Intervention Lead will be working with CPSI on the recruitment and selection of the behaviour change and implementation science volunteer faculty. This newly minted faculty will lead the behaviour change work associated with the IPAC Integrated Action Plan.
