The Healthcare Forum 2020 is all about embracing the shift that is happening in healthcare environmental hygiene, and staying ahead of the market. Pathogens in the patient environment are now recognized as being a major source of healthcare-associated infections. Academics have also been able to prove that improving the patient environment lowers these infection rates and saves lives.
We are addressing this on diverse fronts: by driving forward the academic research, championing technical innovations, adapting solutions to real-life contexts and changing how we think about the workforce.
It’s important to combine the knowledge in healthcare institutions, industry, academia, if we want to make a real difference on the front lines.
