This bilingual program was first launched in 2011, updated in 2013 and again in 2015; and now a new version has been released for 2018. This Infection Prevention and Control Routine Practices eLearning program is designed to help reduce infections in our increasingly complex and accessible healthcare settings. It has been designed in response to increasingly virulent strains of infection and the growth in public access to healthcare settings as our population ages. This First Line of Defence program was developed by a national committee of Infection Prevention and Control Professionals (ICPs) in both French and English.
