The winner of the Annual Poster Contest is announced at the annual IPAC Canada Conference. Winners receive free registration (Sunday-Wednesday) at the next IPAC Canada conference.
The theme for 2018 National Infection Control Week (October 22-26, 2018) is:
"Infection Prevention and Control - No Borders!"
