Adherence to Infection Control (IC) protocol is paramount to patient safety. However, during crises (e.g. cardiac arrest), healthcare professionals find it difficult to balance out the need for urgent patient management and adherence of IC measures. 

The Singapore General Hospital surgical intensive care, simulation and infection control teams have conducted a joint pilot project in teaching IC using Interprofessional Education (IPE) and in situ simulation format. Our hypothesis is “Learning IC through IPE and simulation will result in better IC knowledge retention, in comparison with the standard online video IC education and create better team work.” 

The Faculty would like to share with the participants their journey in setting up an IPE workshop involving the i​nfection control and resuscitation theme, which  is important to all healthcare professionals.
Learning Objectives: 
  1. Discuss the benefits and challenges of setting up an IPE workshop.
  2. Experience setting up or participating in an IPE workshop.​​
  3. Discuss the art of debriefing an IPE audience.​
