Knowlex Infection Prevention & Control 2022

For the first time, the Infection Prevention and Control Conference will take place over two days. At this conference, NHSE/I will announce the new guidelines for Infection Prevention and Control. We will cover over the two days IPC best practice, which will include elements for community and mental health as well as acute nursing. We will also cover clinical topics such as AMR. In 2020 NHSE/I rolled out their vision of the NHS Long Term Plan for Infection Prevention and Control, with strong themes around AMR and Gram-Negative bloodstream infections.

Throughout 2020, and much of 2021, we saw the biggest global pandemic in recent history, COVID19. We will review the lessons learned and re-emphasise the need for effective hand washing and personal hygiene protocols, that quite literally became a life or death necessity.

Following discussions with our partners NHSE/I and PHE, themes for this national meeting will therefore include amongst others, outbreak management, improving hand hygiene (and auditing procedures), and decontamination/cleaning protocols. From the pandemic we learnt much about preventing airborne transmission of infection. There will still be a strong focus on AMR as well as focusing on GNBSI and the common causes such as UTIs.

In this national meeting we will revisit the common themes of infection prevention, review current control standards, and celebrate best practice. Our exhibition will showcase the latest innovation and technology available globally. You will be able to network with over 500 healthcare professionals each day. Delegates will be able to choose to attend either or both days.

EBME Expo 2022

EBME Expo 2022

The EBME Expo is an independent educational event bringing together healthcare professionals who are responsible for the management of medical equipment. These healthcare professionals are involved in areas such as procurement, maintenance, user training, and managing inventories.

Thanks to the sponsorship of our 90+ exhibitors, this independent exhibition is offered free of charge to all visitors. Furthermore, there are three workshops in the break out areas and many of our exhibitors provide technical demonstrations.

For our 2022 event on the 28th & 29th June, we are excited to announce that we will be moving to the Coventry Building Society Arena (Formerly the Ricoh Arena), Coventry, UK.  This larger venue has been chosen so that we can expand to host a second conference focusing on ‘The Operating Theatre’, and to keep up with demand from both exhibitors and delegates.  Operating theatre staff are the largest group of medical equipment users in hospitals, and this is why we believe they will complement our current audience.

We are delighted to welcome Rob Brothwood, Senior Operating Department Practitioner at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital, as the Chairman for the additional conference area, to which we will be welcoming Specialist EBME Technicians, Operating Department Practitioners (ODP’s), Theatre & Recovery Nurses,  Anaesthetists, Surgeons, plus others…
