About Us

APIC Montana  Chapter 117 serves the entire state of Montana. Our goals to are improve the quality of healthcare through the practice and administration of infection control and epidemiology.  

Health care has reached a critical point where significant changes in how and where care is received impacts outcomes.  Part of these changes raised the support from government agencies and health care administration and allowed for Infection Preventionists to accelerate progress toward the goal to elimination of preventable healthcare associated infections. 

Our chapter meetings support this goal by structured knowledge sharing related to new practices, products and strategies to optimize resources.  In addition, we make it a priority to welcome, recruit, mentor and support new IPs.         

Our chapter has Infection Preventionists from many different healthcare settings, including acute care, long term care, ambulatory care and many others.   An Infection Preventionist has a challenging, unique role in healthcare and our chapter’s members are multidisciplinary.   APIC Montana formed in 1993 and currently has 39 members.

Infection Prevention is a constantly evolving discipline.   It is helpful to look back at how we as Infection Control Practitioners, Professionals and now Preventionists have benefited from each other’s experiences and knowledge over the years.  Benefits include both local and national educational opportunities and resources. We welcome you to join us.
