PDI International – a trusted UK manufacturer of innovative and sustainable infection control solutions – will be showcasing its award-winning Layered Approach to Infection Prevention empowering hospitals to tackle Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) at this year’s Infection Prevention & Control Conference.

Infection control remains a major challenge to healthcare professionals in the UK and worldwide. PDI International recognises the critical need for a multifaceted defence strategy to ensure the highest standards of infection control and mitigate the risks associated with HAIs.

PDI International’s award-winning Layered Approach to Infection Prevention represents a solution tailored to help healthcare facilities feel more confident about their product choices, and how they should be used to mitigate the risk of cross-contamination. This innovative approach encompasses Assessment, Product Selection, Training, and Support, all aimed at enhancing healthcare outcomes for patients, healthcare workers and the facility at large.

By showcasing their layered approach at the conference, PDI International aims to educate attendees on the importance of addressing each element with the aim of helping to minimise the risk of infection within healthcare settings.

Commercial Director for Healthcare, Mike Sullivan said: “Infection prevention is a key priority for the NHS, but it’s also incredibly complex. No single approach can entirely eradicate the risk of HAIs. At PDI International, we’re committed to addressing this challenge through our innovative layered approach.

We are excited to attend this year’s Infection Prevention & Control Conference to showcase how we can help healthcare facilities in understanding how we deliver our award-winning layered approach.”

In the UK, Healthcare-associated infections every year cost the NHS in excess of £2 billion annually.[1]

With around 300,000 people a year in England acquiring a healthcare-associated infection in the NHS,[2] there is increasing focus on healthcare facilities to increase infection control and prevention strategies. Studies suggest that over half of hospital-acquired infections are preventable through evidence-based infection prevention and control strategies.[3]

PDI International is dedicated to leading the fight against preventable infections in healthcare and across communities. The company’s comprehensive range of market-leading products includes clinically proven disinfection wipes, PT1 biocide skin disinfection solutions, patient cleansing wipes, automated room disinfection device, and air decontamination systems.

Hosted by Knowlex (Knowledge Exchange), Infection Prevention & Control Conference takes place on the 23rd-24th April 2024 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.
