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 pediatric healthcare settings, including acute care hospitals, ambulatory practices, and long-term care facilities. It addresses the nuances and challenges specific to pediatric 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 pediatric facilities. *** The Handbook of Pediatric Infection Prevention and Control is a publication of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, the world's largest organization dedicated to the treatment, control, and eradication of infectious diseases that affect children.
