IPC Conference – Just Bluffing It 2021

Invite from the Convenor

We warmly welcome you to the Deep South.

As we have come to be accustomed to in these times, the 2022 IPCNC Conference – Just Bluffing It has unfortunately been postponed due to Omicron and the effect on all attendees.  Although the Red restrictions could have been met by a hybrid in-person / online conference, ultimately this is not either practical or desirable for the IPCNC Conference.

We have received tremendous interest in this Conference and postponing the Conference allows for a full speaker and social programme to be delivered for an in-person audience.

New Dates: The Infection Prevention and Control Nurses College (IPCNC) Conference 2021 is now to be held at the Ascot Park Hotel, Invercargill, NZ, Wed 23 Nov – Fri 25 Nov 2022

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 2022.

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 2022!
