Product Description
This is a primary reference source to ensure that, where applicable, the evidence base is being applied to infection control practice and procedures. The content is applicable to a variety of settings in primary care: people's own homes, nursing and residential homes, prisons, tattooing and piercing establishments, schools, nurseries, dental and GP surgeries. This book also brings together issues ranging from the needs of the individual living in their own home, to the needs of an entire population faced with myriad threats to their health from infections, as well as issues such as epidemiology, audit and research. Although aimed primarily at nurses, midwives and health visitors, those working in professions allied to medicine will find this book valuable for infection control aspects of their particular specialism, such as podiatry within health centres, physiotherapy issues and equipment, and dental treatment.
