Madeleine Ashcroft has been a nurse for more than 40 years, trained at the Nightingale School, London, England. She worked in many specialty areas, including critical care, operating rooms, midwifery, renal, intravenous therapy, community care, and as a college educator, before getting into infection prevention and control (IPAC) a few years before SARS hit Toronto. Madeleine has worked in IPAC in acute, chronic, and rehab hospitals, long-term care, and regional networks (including with Public Health Ontario) as well as with the WHO (Ebola relief). She has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Toronto and a Master in Health Studies from Athabasca University. She is the current Director of Standards and Guidelines on the IPAC Canada Board and recently took on a new role managing the Trillium Health Partners Community Outreach IPAC Hub in Mississauga/South Etobicoke, supporting congregate living settings.
Madeleine was delighted to work with NSWOCC and two other national nursing associations in the development of the Best Practices for Intermittent Urethral Catheterization published last year.
