NEW! Leadership and Management in Infection Prevention

However, Leadership, one of the six future-oriented competency domains in APIC’s Competency Model for the IP, is also an essential, strategic skillset that requires training, reinforcement, and development.

Develop the knowledge, skills, awareness, and mindset to be an effective and impactful leader throughout your facility and network.
