PHILADELPHIA, February 20, 2023 /CSRwire/ – Tork, an Essity Brand, has announced a strategic partnership with the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) for 2023. APIC is the largest association for infection prevention and control (IPC) professionals, with more than 15,000 infection preventionist (IP) members.
The APIC Strategic Partner Program is a formal partnership between APIC and industry partners united in the common goal of advancing the science and practice of infection prevention and control in healthcare facilities and beyond. The long-term relationships established with industry partners through the APIC Strategic Partner Program play an important role in supporting many of the educational initiatives and services that benefit the APIC’s membership, which includes nurses, physicians, epidemiologists, microbiologists, public health professionals and other individuals dedicated to preventing the spread of infection.
“We are excited to welcome all of our 2023 APIC Strategic Partners,” said APIC CEO Devin Jopp, EdD. “As we continue to make progress in infection prevention and control for healthcare, long term care, and practice research in 2023, we look forward to partnering with industry to advance the science and education for the IPC community. With the help of our Strategic Partners, we can create a safer world through the prevention of infection.”
“Tork is pleased to support APIC as a Strategic Partner this year,” said Deborah Chung, Healthcare Marketing Manager at Essity Professional Hygiene. “Together with APIC, we strive to improve patient safety by reducing the risk of infection.”
APIC Strategic Partners fully support the Competency Advancement Assistance (CAA) Program—APIC’s financial assistance program that help IPs further their education by managing the cost associated with obtaining the Certification in Infection Prevention and Control (CIC®) credential. The CAA program covers exam fees and study resources for up to 50 IPs annually.
