IP Competency: Novice, Proficient, Expert
Duration: 60 minutes
Professional and Practice Standards for Infection Preventionist (IP) were last published in 2008. Though this publication provided a strong foundation and framework for the profession on which to practice and define the professional scope; since that time, the profession has evolved tremendously and now includes functions that are expansive, novel and challenging to today's IP. The updated standards take into account the varying role of the IP across all competency domains:infection prevention and control, technical, leadership and program management,and performance improvement and implementation science; and career states:novice (early), proficient (middle), expert (advanced). They are intended to assist the IP in identifying areas for professional growth and provide performance criteria when used in conjunction with APICs Competency Model. This session is intended to facilitate the dissemination of the updated professional and practice standards to a wide audience of IPs, by providing tangible examples of how to best utilize them.
