Our members form a network of over 1,300 experts working in the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections. Our membership categories reflect the knowledge and skills of professionals interested in nosocomial infections.
We publish two editorially-independent journals in the field of infection prevention and control. Free access to the Journal of Hospital Infection is available to our members, and Infection Prevention in Practice is freely available to all readers online. The journals team also run a podcast, Infection Prevention in Conversation, to give deeper insight into published papers.
We collaborate with other Societies and work with experts to produce evidence-based guidelines and guidance to promote clinical best practice.
Our trainee education programme, open to HIS Trainee members, is specifically for medical microbiology, medical virology and infectious diseases trainees and is aligned to the RCPath curricula.
Our IPC leaders' development programme comprises a series of 1-day events, aimed at current or aspiring DIPCs and Deputy DIPCs, or those in a similar role.
