Guidelines Steering Committee

Lead: Joanne Archer
In September of 2009 the Guidelines Steering Committee was formed to ensure that PICNet developed guidelines have used appropriate methodology and the best available research in their conception and development. This group meets several times a year to review the work currently being undertaken by guidelines working groups.

Surveillance Steering Committee

Lead: Bruce Gamage and Dr. Guanghong Han
In June 2009, the CDI surveillance system went live, as the Health Authorities began uploading data into the PICNet data repository. PICNet continues to receive CDI data submissions from all Health Authorities in BC. CDI surveillance is now being published on a semi-annual basis.

The CDI Surveillance Working Group transformed into the Surveillance Steering Committee to address BC’s need for an Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) surveillance program. The committee includes representatives from each Health Authority, who voluntarily contribute to the development and expansion of the province-wide surveillance program.

Education Steering Committee

Lead: Joanne Archer
The Education Steering Committee was formed in August 2010 to guide PICNet’s education initiatives, including the programming of the annual educational conference. The Education Steering Committee is currently working on the educational programming of the 2015 educational conference.
