“Implementation (of quality initiatives) can be thought of like a muscle ….
the more often you flex that muscle the stronger it becomes”
(From the July 14 teleclass, “Results of Qualitative Research on Implementation of Infection Control Best Practices in European Hospitals” by Lauren Clack and Dr. Hugo Sax)

6th CONGRESS OF THE INFECTION CONTROL AFRICA NETWORK (ICAN)
….. September 25-28
Building on the successes of previous ICAN conferences in Uganda, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Kenya and South Africa this conference promises to deliver more. The popularity of this unique African IPC conference is its scientific and social programs and it is supported by CDC and the WHO. The scientific program blends keynote addresses and state-of-the-art lectures from international experts, plenary sessions that not only addresses global matters such as antimicrobial resistance and stewardship but also African events like Ebola and water borne diseases.
(Webber Training is proud to support infection control education in Africa and we encourage you to get involved with ICAN – it’ll change you.)
The Teleclass Education initiative is run entirely by groups of volunteers around the globe, and on a not-for-profit basis. Funding support from our Patron Sponsors is therefore extremely valuable and we are very grateful. Thanks to Sealed Air Diversey Care (www.sealedair.com), Virox Technologies Inc (www.virox.com), and the World Health Organization Infection Prevention and Control Global Unit (www.who.int/gpsc/en).
Thanks again for your support of Teleclass Education.
