2021 IPU Manual Update
Recertification by Infection Prevention Units (IPUs) launched as additional pathway to recertification in 2020. With the completion of the first year, CBIC has implemented feedback into a revised 2021 IPU manual for those individuals due to recertify in 2021. We have adjusted the categories to reflect the new changes and added examples of acceptable activities for each category. These changes will not alter the recertification by examination process.
A Farewell Message from our Current CBIC President, Linda Goss
We are all not likely to forget 2020 any time soon and recognize the intense spotlight that infection preventionists have been under. To that end, the tremendous amount work that IP’s around the globe have been engaged in and continue to do so is commendable. The fight isn’t over but there is a bright spot with the New Year quickly approaching. Furthermore, CBIC has continued to work on monitoring and evaluating the new initiatives that were introduced earlier in the year and the accomplishments of the Board of Directors and the staff is worth noting.
Read the entire farewell message.
Take Your CIC® Status into Retirement
Individuals who have maintained certification by recertifying every five years not only demonstrate a continued commitment to best practices in infection prevention and control but also serve as advocates for the CIC® and for CBIC.
In an effort to recognize the contributions and professional achievements of CICs in the field of infection prevention and control, individuals entering retirement who currently hold the CIC® credential and meet specific criteria may obtain Emeritus CIC® Status.
