APIC introduces infection prevention competency model

To meet the demands of the rapidly expanding field of infection prevention, and equip professionals for the challenges of the future, APIC introduced their first model for infection preventionist (IP) competency. The model outlines the skills needed to advance the infection prevention field and was created to help direct the IP’s professional development at all career stages.
