Huronia Practitioners of Infection Control (IPAC HUPIC)
Welcome to IPAC HUPIC!
Message from the President
My name is Adel Coulter and I am your 2019 -2020 IPAC HUPIC Chapter President.
I began my nursing career in 2007 working in a very busy family practice,my journey would take me to the Grey Bruce Health Unit in 2013; opening the door for a new fresh approach to nursing. I achieved my CIC in 2016 and my MDRT certificate in 2019 and I’ve never looked back.
If you are looking for black and white…..IPAC is far from it. IPAC is an enormous topic that can take you in many direction in a single day. It is never dull, keeps you on your toes, and did I mention very engaging.
Do you want to want to make a difference? Are you looking for fullfilling, challenging, engaging career? I encourage you to investigate where IPAC can fit into your career; trust me you will never look back.
INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL can and does save lives!
IPAC HUPIC was established, with members from Grey, Bruce, Huron, Perth and Simcoe. Our rich history has supported infection prevention control practitioners and healthcare providers from long term care, acute care, retirement homes, community care, industry, public health, and PHO IPAC West.
We offer face-to face meetings, education opportunities and workshops to meet the educational needs of our membership, health care workers and our community.
Our chapter continues to offer an educational fund to which members can apply to receive financial help to attend infection control related educational events.
IPAC is a staple in healthcare and we have a lot to offer. I welcome you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information about membership, education, meetings, mentoring and general information.
