President’s ReportIt is my pleasure to present the ACIPC President’s Report for 2022. Firstly, I would like to thank our 2022 conference chair, Holly Seale, and all the Scientific Conference Committee for bringing us back together after a long absence. It is wonderful to be able to connect with colleagues across IPC once again. I think we all appreciate that in addition to hearing from national and international experts, our annual conference allows us to come together as a community. This is something I certainly missed over the last two years. It is pleasing to note we have over 720 participants for the conference at the ICC and online. I understand this is the largest participation in our annual conference.I extend my thanks to all the speakers who are contributing to the program. I wish to acknowledge the support we have received from our sponsors and corporate partners: • Platinum Sponsor: GAMA Healthcare Australia• Gold Sponsors: Reynard Health Supplies and SC Johnson Professional• Silver Sponsors: Ecolab, GOJO Australasia Pty Ltd, Haines Medical Australia• Bronze Sponsors: 3M, Allied Bioservices Pty Ltd, BD,Cepheid, Clorox Australia, Device Technologies, Medihood, Owens & Minor Halyard, Schulke Australia Pty Ltd, Sterri-matt Pty Ltd, Wilhelm Integrated Solutions• Pocket program and name badge sponsor: SC Johnson Professional• Pop Up Stage Sponsor: Reynard Health Supplies• Coee Cart Sponsor: Diversey• Gala Dinner Sponsor: GAMA Healthcare Australia• Educational Breakfast Host: 3MEducation continues to be a core tool in delivering our IPC mission and developing IPC capacity. During 2021/2022 our education courses have continued to be delivered to thousands of students. We have now graduated over 4000 students from the aged care sector from our Foundations of Infection Prevention and Control (FIPC) course. Other courses include the Short Course in Infection Prevention and Control in Aged Care Settings and a new Blood Borne Virus Testing Course. The education team is also working on new courses, including a Foundations of Infection Prevention and Control for veterinary practices. We are also looking at how we can extend the delivery of FIPC into the pacific. ACIPCANNUALREPORT20225

President’s ReportI would like to extend our thanks to Jackie Miley, the education committee, and our team of facilitators who assisted with the delivery of courses, the revision of course materials, and the development of new courses.We have seen an increase in our credentialed members to 100 members across Primary, Advanced and Expert levels. We believe we will continue to see an increase in the number of credentialled members over the next 12 months. I thank the Credentialling and Practice Standards Committee for their work on the credentialling program. Infexion Connexion continues to be well subscribed and utilised by members. We have started the move to web-based forums accessed via the members section on our website. Currently we have the Infexion Connexion archive available on the website and we have created a new Aged Care Forum. We are aiming to develop the Aged Care Forum into a community of practice for our IPC Leads where they can connect with each other and IPC colleagues. Thank you to Michael Wishart for moderating this valued members’ forum, as well as providing guidance and advice on the new forums.Under the direction of Editor-in-Chief, Professor Brett Michell, our journal, Infection, Disease & Health, continues to develop and gain recognition. Thank you to Brett and our three Associate Editors Dr Oyebola Fasugba, Dr Jason Kwong and Dr Gillian Ray-Barruel.On behalf of all members, I thank everyone who contributes to the College by committing their time to our committees: Credentialling and Professional Standards; Education and Professional Development; Membership Communication and Engagement; Research, Grants and Scholarships; Practice Guidance; Governance and Risk, and the Scientific Conference committee; and our other activities including the journal, our forums and GOARN. Financial PerformanceThe College continued its strong financial performance over 2021/2022. We are reporting an audited surplus of $1.45M for the financial year and reserves of $6.4M. The Foundations of IPC, other education courses and membership remain our key income streams. Our challenge over the last two years has been to scale our resources to take opportunity of the current demand, which I believe we have done appropriately as the financial results indicate. Our past work on developing a business model that is scalable to meet opportunities and challenges remains appropriate for the financial conditions. There is every indication the increased demand for Foundations of IPC will continue through 2023. Strategic PlanningThe Board decided to undertake a formal strategic planning process to identify our priorities over the next five years. We have engaged an external consultant to facilitate this process, Randall Pearce from Think: Insight & Advice. The process includes a broad range of interviews with stakeholders and a planning session following the conference. Randall will then work with the Board and our Executive Manager to develop a strategic planning document. I believe this is a critical step in guiding the College and our activities to take advantage of the many opportunities we have before us. 6

Page 9

President’s ReportThe strategic planning will inform how the Board allocates resources to meet the needs of our current members, new members, non-members and stakeholders, education, research, representation, and advocacy.We need to continually develop and strengthen our programs and activities to ensure the College remains the peak body for infection prevention and control in the Australasian region. The College is recognised as a trusted, independent, non-political, expert voice in IPC, and we will look to strengthen our messaging to all stakeholders.I look forward to updating members and stakeholders on the process over the coming months.
