Past events

In 2017, HIS launched the DIPC Network and Development Programme, directed at current or aspiring DIPCs and Deputy DIPCs, or those in a similar role.  The 1-day programmes include speaker presentations, discussion sessions and a networking opportunity in order to:

  • Allow the sharing of experience and knowledge
  • Act as a forum for bringing together DIPCs who are both microbiologists and non-microbiologists
  • Facilitate future research and collaboration
  • Narrow the knowledge gap for those with differing clinical backgrounds

In 2017, there were two DIPC Development Days.  The first event in May was held in Manchester and focused on the topics of ‘Challenges of the role of the DIPC’ and ‘Supporting and Developing DIPCs’.  The second event in December in London was focused on ‘Influencing Others and Changing Behaviour’.

The first DIPC Development Day in 2018 took place in Manchester and focused on 'Taking surveillance forwards: making the most of your data'.

Presentations from all events are available to HIS members via the members’ area of the website.
