    Location: Halifax, NS

    UPDATED TO 2012 STANDARD - Construction, renovation and maintenance activities are a significant cause of potentially fatal infections for the occupants of any healthcare facility. This course focuses on application of CSA Z317.13-12 Infection Control during Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Healthcare Facilities to address necessary measures and help control risk. We will explore the risk factors and a risk analysis profile that is required when doing any type of construction or maintenance in many healthcare facilities across Canada.
    Topics include: risk identification, risk analysis, risk mitigation and preventive measures that can be applied to minimize the risks to patients.
    Gordon serves as the key faculty member for this course across Canada and chairs the technical subcommittee for CSA Z317.13-12 and brings intimate knowledge of the intents of the statements within this standard.
