MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

AN INNOVATIVE AND ESSENTIAL NEW TOOL IN FIGHTING HEALTHCARE-ASSOCIATED INFECTIONS

The Handbook of Pediatric Infection Prevention and Control is the most comprehensive, practical resource available on infection prevention across the spectrum of paediatric healthcare settings, including acute care hospitals, ambulatory practices, and long-term care facilities. It addresses the nuances and challenges specific to paediatric infection prevention, providing expert guidance on topics where evidence-based guidelines don't currently exist.

Expertly written and exceptionally practical, this handbook is an essential resource for infection preventionists, healthcare epidemiologists, infectious disease fellows, and anyone who provides support for infection-prevention programs in paediatric facilities.

***

The Handbook of Pediatric Infection Prevention and Control is a publication of the Paediatric Infectious Diseases Society, the world's largest organisation dedicated to the treatment, control, and eradication of infectious diseases that affect children.
