In Infection Prevention and Control in Healthcare Settings, a team of distinguished researchers deliver an accessible and authoritative introduction to infection control and prevention in hospital and community settings. This is a key resource as professionals deal with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and require the latest and most up-to-date information.

Central topics are discussed at the individual and population levels, with direct links to lessons learned throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The book is written from an evidence-based perspective that utilises modern approaches, reflecting current decision-making methods like GRADE and WHO Evidence to Decision Frameworks.

Readers will also find:

  • A thorough introduction to the chain of infection and the main groups of micro-organisms causing infection
  • Comprehensive explorations of the application of evidence-based practice principles to infection prevention and control
  • Practical discussions of immunity, microbiology laboratories, antimicrobial drugs, and policies and protocols for infection prevention and control
  • The role of epidemiology and public health in the prevention and control of infectious disease

Perfect for student nurses and students of allied health professions, Infection Prevention and Control in Healthcare Settings will also benefit practitioners and managers in the health services seeking to update their knowledge of infection control and prevention in healthcare settings.
