2018 Moira Walker Memorial Award for International Service Recipients-Barbara Catt and Zahir Hirji for their Project:

Their  journey began with a trip by the Infection Control Practitioner (ICP), Loyce Khungi at the Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) in Nairobi, Kenya coming to Toronto who had registered for the in-class Centennial introductory, IPAC course. As faculty within the course, the Nursing Administrator of AKUH, requested Zahir to “watch over” Loyce. This created a relationship with the hospital and a request for IPAC support in 2012. The purpose of the trip was to work with the IPAC Department to ensure they would be ready an Accreditation Survey by the Joint Commission.

The Moira Walker Award will be presented at the Opening Ceremonies, Sunday, May 27.  Barb and Zahir will present on the initiative that resulted in their award at the Breakfast of Champions, Tuesday, May 29, Banff. More information.
