TRICE-IS project (Implementation of a training strategy for Infection Control in the European Union)
In December 2012, the TRICE-IS project (Implementation of a training strategy for Infection Control in the European Union) started as a next step in ECDC’s support to national training programmes for infection control and hospital hygiene (IC/HH).
Summary of the event
On 17 and 18 June all new appointed Member State Experts convened in Venice, Italy, together with ESCMID, WHO Europe, ECDC representatives (from the ARHAI disease programme and the Public Health Training Section) and TRICE Core staff.
The meeting was focused on: project methodology, priorities for infection control/hospital hygiene training at the European level, priorities for development of topics in the future “Infection Control wiki” and the strategy for the endorsement for IC/HH core competencies in countries.
Participants exchanged national experience with infection control/hospital hygiene training and reviewed the methodology of the survey of infection control/hospital hygiene capacity and training needs planned in Spring 2014.
During the 2 half days the 39 participants had the opportunity to review the project, and to make proposals for improvement.
The next planned steps include a call for courses and didactic materials on infection control and hospital hygiene which will be reviewed at European level, as well as the development of agreed course material on an “Infection Control Wiki”, closely linked to FEM Wiki.
