IPC Conference - Just Bluffing It

Event Dates

Wed 15 to Fri 17 Sept 2021

Event Venue

Ascot Park Hotel, Invercargill

Invite from the Convenor

We warmly welcome you to the Deep South.

The Infection Prevention and Control Nurses College (IPCNC) Conference in 2021 is to be held at the Ascot Park Hotel, Invercargill, NZ, 15-17 September.

Infection Prevention and Control is exciting work. We are in a time dynamic and unpredictable global change. We welcome you to join other inspired IPC personnel and renowned experts for the benefit of all.

Our conference theme “Just Bluffing It” refers to both our southern roots and the many metaphorical bluffs, mountains, and valleys we traverse each day.

The conference will include clinical and patient perspectives, and specialist sessions on infrastructure; cleaning; MDROs; Covid-19; IPC in the community; and interactive forums on topical issues. We will also take time to look at our own wellbeing as we are the most valuable IPC resource!

Due to current international travel restrictions, we will not be confirming international speakers until early 2021.

We will celebrate IPC Nursing through posters and presentations.  By sharing our stories and hearing one-another we can grow stronger and wiser.

With true Southern hospitality we offer a relaxed, interactive, and dynamic conference that will both consolidate and challenge our current practices alongside exploring new theories/developments and initiatives.

The Ascot Park Hotel is the conference venue, and provides accommodation on site, including fitness area, spa, sauna and indoor heated pool.  Consider extending your stay to enjoy Fiordland, The Catlins, Stewart Island or Queenstown.

We look forward to seeing you in Southland in 2021!
