The HICMR Products, including Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Manuals and associated tools, have been developed by HICMR and are designed to be used in conjunction with IPC Management Services delivered by HICMR. They are based on relevant and current State, National and International Standards, Guidelines and manufacturers’ instructions for use (IFU), and are referenced as required. They are considered best practice at time of writing. However, in order to meet the needs of individual States’ legislative requirements and regulatory bodies, the IPC Manuals should be read in conjunction with all relevant State guidelines and any other associated information, research or material that is published or becomes available subsequently.
