The IPAC checklists designed specifically for our members have finally been posted on the Public Health website. They can be accessed at:
- IPAC Checklists for Chiropody and Podiatry – Core Elements
- IPAC Checklists for Chiropody and Podiatry – Reprocessing of Medical Equipment/Devices
These checklists should now be used by Public Health if they ever have to visit a member’s practice. They can also be used by you individually as a way to review your practice. They are a reflection of our Infection Control Standard of Practice
This is a major accomplishment for our College. Members of our College have worked tirelessly with Public Health to finalize these documents. These members include: Anna Georgiou (Chair), Pete Guy, Stephen Haber, Martin Hayles, Sasha Kozera and Cindy Lewis. I am receiving calls from other Colleges asking us how we went about doing this. We were apparently ‘featured’ at a recent IPAC meeting.
This information was also sent to all Members on Friday, May 24, 2019 as an e-mail blast.
