INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (IPAC)

We review and assess IPAC practices in physician offices and clinics

Why IPAC?

Our CPSA IPAC Program implements safeguards to prevent infections and protect patients and healthcare workers alike. We:

  • Promote IPAC standards, guidelines and other resources for community practice
  • Conduct onsite reviews to support standards implementation
  • Work with Alberta Health Services to investigate and resolve IPAC-related public concerns
