Welcome to

Our Event

Infection prevention and control has become one of the prime concerns in healthcare owing to an increased awareness of patient safety and the considerable burden of healthcare-associated infections. Invasive devices, poor postoperative status, staff negligence and lack of standardized sterilization & decontamination of surgical instruments procedures are some of the major challenges in preventing infections in healthcare facilities.
With ever increasing operational costs, it is very important for healthcare providers to minimize and eliminate the costs associated with Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). The NICE guidelines are constantly being reviewed by NHS as well as Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure adherence to best practices by all commissioning groups.

MnM conferences put together a unique platform to address challenges in preventing health care associated infections. At the Infection Control, Sterilization and Decontamination in Healthcare Congress held in London, UK on 25 - 26 February 2016, leading experts in the industry gathered to discuss strategies, technologies and updates on guidelines by regulators on infection prevention and control.

Key topics covered:

• Implication of recent changes in polices and guidelines – HTM 0105, ISO-13845
• Evaluating modern methods in endoscope reprocessing
• Methods to prevent transmission of multi resistant organisms: MERS, CPE, MRSA
• Methods to set up robust isolation facilities in hospitals
• Optimized tracking and tracing of surgical instrument
• Advances in improving rinse water quality
