Surveillance databases have been developed and shared by IPAC Canada to support long-term care homes and hospitals in conducting surveillance of infections in their resident and patient populations. This 2-hour workshop is directed specifically to surveillance in Long Term Care.  The webinar aims to provide an overview of what surveillance is, the components of a surveillance system, key elements of data analysis and presentation of results. Interactive exercises utilizing the surveillance databases and setting-specific scenarios will be reviewed and discussed to provide attendees with opportunities to apply some of the surveillance concepts presented.

This is a virtual workshop, not merely a webinar presentation.  Material to support participation in the activities will be shared with registrants at a later date.
