We must affect this change by expanding our sphere of influence, and in order to be successful in this, must develop strong leadership skills. Leadership and program management are so important to success that they have been included as one of the four essential domains of the APIC Competency Model for the Infection Preventionist. The APIC Competency Model for the Infection Preventionist in a white paper in the May issue of the American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC), the official journal of APIC, in a special topic issue focused on "The Road to 2020."This session will present different leadership skill sets that will be needed at different stages of the infection preventionist's career, beginning with skills that are essential for success as new infection preventionist and the skills that will be needed as your scope of influence expands within your facility and beyond.
