Great progress has been made on the IPAC action plan, with all but 3 actions completed as of March 31, 2018. CPSI is committed to continue to work with our partners on the remaining actions.
With respect to the 2 actions focused on measurement and surveillance, CPSI has embedded this work into our new strategic direction, Patient Safety Right Now. More specifically, the actions that will be carried on into the 2018/2019 fiscal year are:
- Work with partners to promote the pan-Canadian adoption of IPAC surveillance definitions
- Contribute to the development of a solution for pan-Canadian collection, analysis and reporting of Healthcare Associated Infection surveillance data
- Knowledge translation and implementation science activities aimed at healthcare providers and leaders who are looking for behaviour change strategies to accelerate their quality improvement efforts. In 2018/19, CPSI is committed to the completion of the knowledge translation and implementation science national webinar series, aimed at healthcare providers and leaders, as a central focus of CPSI's new strategic plan.
