IPAC Work Group Objective and Values Statement

Objective: To support the continuous improvement of infection prevention and control practices in midwifery by making recommendations about priorities and strategies to the midwifery community.  

The IPAC Work Group believes that this objective will be best met by:

  1. Respecting the values and model of midwifery care.
  2. Recognizing the importance of both the needs of each individual client and the needs of the community of clients.
  3. Acknowledging that midwifery clients and their babies are generally healthy, yet everyone is susceptible to or may carry infection.
  4. Respecting midwives’ ethical responsibility to provide care that protects their clients and themselves from infection.  
  5. Remaining aware of the potential impact on the environment.
  6. Empowering midwives and practice groups to reflect on their own practice and make adjustments in a way that considers the context in which they are providing care.
