Our CEO Laura Tamblyn Watts is a member of Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group)’s Technical Subcommittee on Long-Term Care Homes, which is creating new national standards of infection prevention and control (IPAC) in long-term care (aka CSA Z8004, Operation and infection prevention and control of long-term care homes).
The public is now being invited to comment on the first draft of these standards. The deadline to provide feedback is April 11, 2022.
Your insight is crucial in ensuring these new national standards represent the views and lived experiences of older adults and their caregivers across the country. Please take some time to review the draft and offer your comments!
We’ll continue to update you on the progress of these standards as we continue our work on their development.
