The Department of Veterans’ Affairs serves America’s veterans with dignity and compassion and is their principal advocate in ensuring that they receive the care, support, and recognition earned in service to this nation. APIC’s Veterans’ Affairs section represents more than 200 infection preventionists (IPs) who work for the VA.
Members of the VA section have established and work to maintain a communication system for VA section members including email, conference calls, and a website to increase collaboration and promotion of the mutual goals of APIC and VA IPs. The section has also been involved in the establishment of a surveillance system for VA healthcare-associated infections and has collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion.
