APIC is the leading professional association for infection preventionists (IPs) with more than 14,000 members. Our mission is to create a safer world through the prevention of infection. This is achieved by the provision of better care to promote better health at a lower cost.
Most APIC members are nurses, physicians, public health professionals, epidemiologists, or medical technologists who:
- Collect, analyze, and interpret health data in order to track infection trends, plan appropriate interventions, measure success, and report relevant data to public health agencies
- Establish scientifically based infection prevention practices and collaborate with the healthcare team to assure implementation
- Work to prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in healthcare facilities by isolating sources of infections and limiting their transmission
- Educate healthcare personnel and the public about infectious diseases and how to limit their spread
New APICIN President Susan Kraska was elected president-elect at the spring conference. She will finish the 2013 term for President Sonya Mauzy. A new president-elect will be chosen for 2014 and Sonya will continue her original term as the president through 2014..
