      "Join your friends, family members, and healthcare professionals in celebrating International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW), October 16-22, 2016.
      IIPW, which takes place the third week of October each year, raises awareness of the role infection prevention plays to improve patient safety. The 2016 theme is “Break the Chain of Infection.” That is what they say on IIPW's website (http://professionals.site.apic.org/iipw/). Will you join?
      You can find general information also at: http://professionals.site.apic.org/
      There is also some material provided by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) who organizes the IIPW each year.
