Mental health group to be set up

  • Comment
The Infection Prevention Society is to set up a special interest group for infection control nurses working in mental health settings.

Judy Potter, president of the IPS, acknowledged that infection control in mental health settings could be particularly challenging and nurses working there needed specialist support.

‘Applying the practices used in acute or primary care settings can be very difficult because of the types of patients mental health nurses see,’ she said.

The group plans to hold its first meeting before the end of the year.
