If you or your staff are exposed to blood and body fluid at work, do you know what to do? The College’s IPAC Program teamed-up with 11 other health regulatory colleges to develop resources for community-based practices. These resources will help eliminate confusion surrounding BBFE protocols, specifically highlighting:
- BBFE prevention
- Best practice for assessment and follow-up
Resources include online modules, posters, algorithms and more. Check them out; and know what to do FIRST* when exposed!
The IPAC Program’s Standards for General Infection Prevention & Control requires clinics to have a written policy & procedure for managing BBFEs. These resources are intended to supplement those existing employer protocols. If you have questions or require additional support, contact the IPAC Program at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-969-5004.
