Lisa Snodgrass, BN, RN, CIC is the Regional Clinical Support Partner
for New Brunswick. She recently achieved an internationally recognized standard
of competence in the infection prevention & control field. Lisa is now one
in 6,000 infection prevention and control professionals working in hospitals,
long-term care facilities, ambulatory care centers, and other healthcare
settings throughout the world!

The CIC® credential is administered by the Canadian Board of Infection
Control and Epidemiology, which identifies healthcare professionals who have
shown a mastery of knowledge in infection prevention and control.

Her certification is recognized by professional associations in infection
control and is also accredited through the National Commission for Certifying
Agencies.

When asked why it was important for her to have this certification,
Lisa said: “it demonstrates a high level of commitment to infection prevention
and control, and gives me credibility when working with others in the field.”

Working towards her CIC gave her the opportunity to learn more in depth
knowledge of infection control practices. “As a CIC, I now have the resources
to ensure our organization is using a best practice approach to infection
prevention and control and it gives me a sound foundation upon which to grow
and improve our organization’s infection prevention and control program.”

The path towards certification has allowed Lisa to work with others in
the field and create a network of partnerships that will be mutually
beneficial.

Congratulations to Lisa, one of our Great People!
