The Grampians Region Infection Control Group was established in 2000 as part of the Victorian Government's initiative to facilitate a coordinated approach to the implementation of a state wide infection control strategic framework. The group consists of the two regional consultants (Mary Smith and Sue Atkins) and the infection control consultant from each health care facility in the Grampians Region.

The purpose of the regional group is to:alt

  • Provide a forum for liaison between agency infection control consultants
  • Provide on-site support to the agency infection control consultants
  • Develop generic resources that can be used by the whole region and beyond
  • To conduct inter-agency benchmarking projects
  • To work with the Rural Infection Control Practice Group (RICPRAC) to conduct inter-regional benchmarking projects.
