Establishing an Occupational Health and Infection Control Program in a Large Ambulatory Care Facility

This project developed and implemented an occupational health and infection prevention and control program within a multi-partner, multi-purpose ambulatory (outpatient) health care facility. To inform the development of the program, the research team conducted a literature review, a needs assessment, and an audit of cleaning practices. The program was developed in close collaboration with facility staff. Before and after the program was implemented, the research team conducted workplace assessments and surveyed staff about their infection prevention control knowledge, attitudes and practices. The researchers provide several recommendations for ambulatory health care facilities, based on the project findings.
