DIPC Education Programme

In 2017, HIS launched the DIPC Network and Development Programme directed 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’.

Useful resources from these events will shortly be available on this page and the presentations from both events are available to HIS members via the members’ area of the website.

The programme for 2018 is currently being planned and will be available shortly.  If you would like to express an interest in receiving more information about our DIPC Networking programme, please email us.
