Apply Now: Medtronic Infection Control Scholarship

23 February 2016

Encouraging collaboration amongst the Infection Control community, Supported by the ACIPC

Hospitals and Healthcare providers around the world continue to strive to reduce healthcare-associated infections. We care about helping to reduce infections and improve patient outcomes too.

With support from the Australian College of Infection Prevention and Control (ACIPC), the Medtronic 2016 Infection Control Scholarship has been designed to encourage Australian and New Zealand healthcare professionals with an interest in infection control, to share their successes and innovations in infection control and receive support for further work in this area. The scholarship is to support critical infection control projects to ultimately enhance patient safety and assist best practice procedures and work place outcomes.

The annual scholarship was established in 2006 and has awarded over $320,000 to projects in healthcare associated infection surveillance and management along with support areas including clinical governance, research, training, poster/paper presentations at conferences and post graduate education in the infection control space.

Funding will be awarded across three categories:

  • Major Research Project: Two grants for research project requiring funding up to $15,000 (Total Award = $30,000).
  • Minor Research Projects: Two grants for research projects requiring funding up to $5,000 will be awarded (Total Award = $10,000).
  • Educational Grant: $10,000 in grants to further educational requests related to Infection Control such as conference/oral presentations at either national or international conferences

More information on the scholarship and how to apply is here and on the ACIPC website.
