Development and Implementation of the National Infection Surveillance Program for Aged Care (NISPAC)

The program will address known barriers to effective infection prevention and control (IPC) practices, improve quality of care for consumers and surpass policy and accreditation standards at the facility-level. NISPAC will provide a dedicated and secure portal accessible by ACH staff to enable participation in a national infection surveillance program that includes quality indicators, benchmark reporting and IPC support resources. Over the next three years we will keep you informed about the progress of this program.
