An exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified RN to join the Infection Prevention Team. This is a 12 month fixed term contract.
An infection prevention nurse consultant will enhance awareness of the 2017 Victorian CPE guidelines through education and training, and will ensure adherence to current guidelines for management and screening across Alfred Health (including international transfers and patients with a history of recent overseas travel). Staff education and patient information materials will also be reviewed.
This role will include the follow up of patients known to be colonized to define the risk of infection in colonized patients, and co-ordinate responses, including case and contact management, and internal and external communications.
Consideration will also be given to a program of environmental screening.
