Angela, also known as The Clean Vet, is a Public Health Academic and a veterinarian who continues to provide palliative and end of life care to pets in their home. A key goal of hers is to improve infection prevention and control (IPC) in all veterinary settings. As part of this goal, in collaboration with ACIPC, she has developed a veterinary specific IPC course - thought to be the first of its kind. This goal developed as she was completing her PhD which investigated IPC in small animal practices. Angela’s drive to undertake this PhD evolved through her transition from her first career as a human based Registered Nurse to that of a veterinarian. As a veterinary IPC specialist, her experience has enabled her to provide pragmatic and contextual advice to clinicians and practice owners.
