Long Term Care Case Definitions

IPAC Canada announces the publication of revised case definitions for Long Term Care.  This is a result of the dedicated work of the Surveillance and Applied Epidemiology Interest Group, the Long Term Care Interest Group, and in collaboration with l'Association des infirmieres en prevention des infections (AIPI).  The work to review and revise current LTC definitions is a priority of the National Infection Prevention and Control Action Plan. Please distribute these case definitions to your colleagues who do LTC surveillance.  IPAC Canada will be sending these documents to provincial health authorities to encourage their pan-Canadian adoption.
