Position Statements

Position Statements convey the perspectives and recommendations of the Capital Heath Infection Prevention and Control Department. They are based upon best practice, scientific evidence and recommendations from authorities such as the Public Health Agency of Canada.

They are provided to assist Capital Health’s health care providers to improve patient outcomes and to reduce the risk for the acquisition of a health care associated infection.

Position Statements are reviewed by members of the Capital Health Infection Prevention and Control Department every three years to ensure they are reflective of current knowledge and evidence.
