The course will be led by globally well-known leading expert Dr. Iyad Al-Attar (WFI Strategic Director, Canada) with Mr. Stephen Nicholas (Past NAFA Chair, Filter Services, USA).

This course provides an interaction opportunity to learn from the experts about attaining a sustainable hospital environment where filtration technologies and HVAC maintenance measures can help raise the bar of air quality through appropriate filter selection and installation.

Participants will gain practical knowledge of air filter selection, installation, maintenance, and disposal. In addition, we will delve into the impact of climate and operational conditions on filter performance and the essential role of monitoring air quality for the well-being of patients, healthcare staff, visitors, and the longevity of HVAC equipment. The latest updates in filtration standards, developments, challenges, and future trends for healthcare facilities will also be discussed.
