We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Geneva, Switzerland, for the 7th International Conference on Prevention & Infection Control (ICPIC), which will be held on 12-15 September 2023.
ICPIC has become the leading conference and a must-attend event for the global IPC community. Stimulating research & innovation, exchanging ideas and experiences remain at the core of our mission to prevent healthcare-associated infections and control antimicrobial resistance around the world.
It is time to get together with colleagues and old friends from all continents to discuss, grow and learn about tremendously important topics such as: IPC, antimicrobial resistance, devices-associated infections, quality of patient care, advanced methods in hospital epidemiology research and early results of major clinical trials in the field, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on health and health services, the economy and the society, improvement of prevention strategies using various implementation tools, as well as social media, telemedicine, and simulation models.
The nurses and allied health professionals’ community is warmly welcome to the conference. Our scientific advisory board has designed symposia that are relevant to our nurse colleagues and address key challenges in their daily occupation.
ICPIC will again collaborate with various international agencies and societies to mobilize even more world experts and key opinion leaders to share their knowledge and expertise, including (among others) the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
ICPIC keynotes, symposia, Pro-Con debates, free-papers and meet-the-expert sessions will continue, as will the unique and very popular ICPIC Innovation Academy and ICPIC Clip Award. While retaining the elements that led to the success of the first six ICPIC summits, and continue to boost the possibilities for exchange with your peers, we will surprise you again with new features, too.
We look forward to your active participation in the 7th ICPIC in September 2023, as well as to welcoming you to Geneva – please mark your calendars!
