The NISPAC project is a collaboration between three peak bodies in surveillance and aged care in Australia.
The Victorian Healthcare Associated Infection Surveillance System (VICNISS) Coordinating Centre was established in 2002. It coordinates the Aged Care Infection Indicator Program which supports collection and analysis of data relating to multi-drug resistant organisms and staff and resident vaccinations.
The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship (NCAS) was established in 2015. It coordinates the Aged Care National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey (AC NAPS) which collects data on rates of certain infections and antimicrobial used in aged care facilities.
The Registry of Senior Australians (ROSA) monitors the health, service utilisation, medication use, mortality, and other important outcomes of people receiving aged care services in Australia.
NISPAC is a multi-institute research project developing an infection surveillance program for Australian Residential Aged Care Facilities
NISPAC acknowledges Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders past and present.
