The Infection Control Nurses Association has rebranded itself as the Infection Prevention Society (IPS).

The Infection Control Nurses Association has rebranded itself as the Infection Prevention Society (IPS).

The new society, officially launched at its Brighton conference on Wednesday, is open to all healthcare professionals working in infection prevention and control, such as doctors, scientists, educationalists and researchers.

'Although infection prevention and control nurses will no doubt remain the backbone of the organisation, as they are within the infection control team in the workplace, we recognise that many other disciplines and roles have emerged within the sector,' said Judy Potter, IPS president and lead nurse/director of infection prevention and control at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.

'The expertise developed within the ICNA over almost 4 decades will be further enhanced through the expanded membership of the IPS,' she added.
