DIPC Network and DIPC Development Programme July 2018

We are delighted to announce that the next HIS DIPC Network and DIPC Development Programme will take place on Tuesday 3 July, at The Midland Hotel Manchester, UK.

Approved by the Royal College of Pathologists for 5 CPD credits.

This event will be focused on 'Taking surveillance forwards: making the most of your data' and all current or aspiring DIPCs and Deputy DIPCs are invited to attend.

The programme will include speaker presentations, discussion sessions and a networking opportunity in order to:

  • Allow the sharing of experience and knowledge

  • Act as a forum for bringing together DIPCs who are both microbiologists and non-microbiologists

  • Facilitate future research and collaboration

  • Narrow the knowledge gap for those with differing clinical backgrounds

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
