8 - 10 November 2021
2021 ACIPC International Conference


The 2021 ACIPC International Conference – brokering new dimensions and frontiers in education, research and practice in infection prevention and control.


While COVID-19 continues to unfold as the most significant health crisis the world has seen in a century, it is critical that we continue to bring together experts in a variety of scientific fields to discuss and share emerging knowledge.

With this in mind, ACIPC has made the decision to hold this year’s conference as a fully online event.

It is ACIPC’s intention, that by making a decision at this time, disruption to planning by participants will be minimised, and we can all move forward with certainty regarding the delivery format of the conference.

The conference will still take place 8 – 10 November and features an impressive array of invited national and international speakers, oral presentations, poster presentations and themed sessions.

Topic and speaker highlights include:

  • Controversies surrounding mask use,
    featuring Distinguished Professor Lidia Morawska, Time magazine – 100 most influential people in the world
  • How has COVID-19 changed infection prevention and control,
    Adjunct Professor (Practice) Alison McMillan, Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer
  • Making decisions without evidence during COVID-19,
    Professor Dale Fisher
  • Worldwide Trends in Infection Prevention & Control,
    Professor Brett Mitchell

The conference will also have a theme session running throughout each of the three days for aged care, office-based practice, and immunisation.

  • Monday, Infection Prevention and Control in Residential and Aged Care Facilities
  • Tuesday, Infection Prevention and Control in Office Based Practice
  • Wednesday, Immunisation workshop
