As a networking collaborative, it is important that members of PICNet’s Community of Practice are able to come together from across the province to:

  • Learn from each other about provincial projects and initiatives, and new developments in the field of infection prevention and control
  • Learn about PICNet’s current projects and activities
  • Help set the direction for future endeavours

PICNet hosts an annual Educational Conferences (every March), and is involved in World Hand Hygiene Day (every May) and Infection Control Week (every October). Follow the links below to upcoming events, or let us know if you have an infection control event that you’d like to promote.

In March 2014, PICNet organized a meeting to tackle outbreaks of Carbapenemase producing organisms (CPO) and Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). Since then, they’ve developed surveillance strategies, prevention toolkits, and educational programs for healthcare providers.
