Core Competencies for HCWs

The scope of Infection Prevention and Control and IPAC Canada has expanded to include community, pre-hospital and public health including both regulated and non-regulated health care. The original core competencies were reviewed to reflect this change in scope as well as to reflect practice changes that have occurred in the last 10 years. The basic core competencies serve as a platform for adding occupation-specific competencies.  The objective was to identify the specific IPAC competencies health care workers need to be able to do to protect themselves in their working environment as well as protecting their patients/ residents/clients. Once a consensus is reached, these competencies will be used to develop training for existing health care workers and will be distributed to institutions across Canada for integration into training programs for all future health care workers.
