Practical Approaches to Infection Control in Residential Aged Care - 2nd Edition
The overwhelming success of the first edition of Infection Control has led to this new revised edition. Presented in a no-nonsense, straightforward style, this easy-to-read text is a concise manual to infection control and prevention. Despite significant advances in prevention and therapy, infectious disease is an ever-present threat. And the changing nature of infectious disease means that nurses, health-care staff, and ancillary staff must continually update their knowledge and skills with regard to the sources, transmission, prevention, and treatment of infections.
Practical Approaches to Infection Control in Residential Aged Care provides this essential knowledge in an easily accessible format. The text features a clear division into logical sections, generous use of bullet points for ease of understanding, frequently asked questions and answers, a comprehensive glossary, a readily accessible index, lists of useful contacts, and notifiable infectious diseases and references. It is thus a thorough and functional guide to this vital subject.
