The association’s research program is supervised by the APIC Research Committee. The committee coordinates initiatives focused on practical solutions, grounded in science, and that can be implemented across the spectrum of healthcare settings. The aim of the APIC Research Committee is to make implementation science a meaningful and essential tool used by all infection preventionists.
APIC sponsors research studies and collaborates with academic investigators on projects that align with the association’s priorities. The findings help infection preventionists make clinically relevant and meaningful improvements to patient safety.
APIC also collaborates with government agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research, and private sector organizations on research projects.
