NEWS : Sept 2011 : CME Programme at Global Hospitals

Two day CME programme on Quality assurance in Microbiology and Infection control

Quality assurance in Microbiology and Infection control form an integral part of a laboratory and health care setting respectively. This two day educational CME programme focuses on aspects of Quality assurance in Microbiology and Infection control slanted towards accreditation processes and it will help many laboratories structure their preparation for an accreditation process in Microbiology or an infection control programme for a hospital accreditation. It will also help laboratories and hospitals who are already accredited to further strengthen their departments of Microbiology and Infection control as they seek surveillance visits and re- accreditation from national and international agencies.

A serious attempt has been made to choose faculty from amongst those who have been a part of the accreditation process, or those who are assessors for national bodies of accreditation. This will hopefully give a first hand information on the requirements in clinical microbiology and infection control for an accreditation process.
