With collaborations with doctors, nurses and industries specialized in IPC, we are focusing our activities in the following 5 fields;
1. Surveillance support
We support the hospitals which want to introduce Hospital Infection Surveillance but do not have adequate knowledge or knowhow to implement the surveillance.
We send our specialists (doctors, nurses) to those hospitals and work with the staff of the hospital to start up and maintain the hospital infection surveillance.
2. Career up support of CNIC (Certified Nurse in Infection Control)
We provide several intensive programs to support the career up endeavor of CNIC.
Our education program includes seminars, workshops and study tours.
3. Promote and support the infection prevention and control in home healthcare
4. Promote and support the infection prevention and control at dental clinics
5. Promote and support the infection prevention and control at eye clinics
