The Power of Checklists
Checklists are useful resources to ensure consistency and to verify tasks that are necessary, get done. The updated checklists for Infection Prevention and Control in Clinical Office Practice assist in IPAC lapse investigations.
They are also used to conduct inspections, audits and reviews of IPAC programs. Updates include changes to: legislative requirements, risk levels, risk definitions, and formatting for ease of reference.
If you have any questions about the checklists or how to use them, contact your Regional IPAC Office.
