Manual of infection prevention and control

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Manual of infection prevention and control
Oct 242018
 

It has been estimated that in developed countries up to 10% of hospitalized patients develop infections every year. Not only is there a substantial cost to healthcare systems, but some healthcare associated infections (HCIAs) can be fatal. Since the majority of HCIAs are preventable, reducing HCIAs is now considered to be an integral part of patient safety and quality of care provided by all healthcare institutions worldwide.Unlike other books on infection control, the main strength of this book is to provide clear, up-to-date and practical guidance in infection control in an easy to read format which can act as a quick source of reference on all aspects of HCIA for healthcare workers who are either directly or indirectly involved in prevention and control of HCIAs. Although the book’s main audience is infection control practitioners such as doctors, nurses, public health physicians, it is also a valuable reference for environmental health officers, health educators, practice managers in GP surgeries, and health service managers.

Both nutrition deficiency and overnutrition can have a significant effect on the risk of infection. Nutrition, Immunity, and Infection focuses on the influence of diet on the immune system and how altering one’s diet helps prevent and treat infections and chronic diseases. This book reviews basic immunology and discusses changes in immune function throughout the life course. It features comprehensive chapters on obesity and the role of immune cells in adipose tissue; undernutrition and malnutrition; infant immune maturation; pre- and probiotics; mechanisms of immune regulation by various vitamins and minerals; nutrition and the aging immune system; nutrition interactions with environmental stress; and immunity in the global health arena.

Practical Approaches to Infection Control in Residential Aged Care

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Practical Approaches to Infection Control in Residential Aged Care
Aug 222018
 

The overwhelming success of the first edition of Infection Control has lead to this new revised edition. Presented in a no-nonsense, straightforward style, this easy-to-read book is a comprehensive guide 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. This book provides this essential knowledge in an easily accessible format. The book 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, and lists of useful contacts, notifiable infectious diseases and references. It is thus a comprehensive and practical guide to this vital subject.

Many people remain at risk in the workplace, and infection control is only as strong as the weakest link. Management and staff members alike share responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of their colleagues and those in their care. Uncontrolled infection can cause unnecessary human suffering and poses significant financial and legal risks to health care facilities, as well as placing the reputation of the facility in jeopardy.

Drinking Water and Infectious Disease: Establishing the Links

 Infectious Diseases  Comments Off on Drinking Water and Infectious Disease: Establishing the Links
Aug 102018
 

In many countries, considerable uncertainty still exists about the contribution of drinking water to sporadic cases of disease. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO), led the Workshop on Molecular Technologies for Safe Drinking Water in 1998 to address the role of water in the transmission of infectious disease. One of the results was a call for improved surveillance and outbreak investigation. Drinking Water and Infectious Disease: Establishing the Links, derived from an OECD workshop hosted by the UK government in Basingstoke, addresses that crucial recommendation. Unlike books that give a broad view on the public health issues regarding water and health, this book focuses on the tools available to identify the links between drinking water and infectious disease and how they might be used. It gathers state-of-the-art information from an international team of experts, including most of the world’s leading authorities on waterborne disease epidemiology and investigation, to provide an overview of current best practices and direction for assessing the safety of drinking water and responding to adverse events. Organized into three sections, this user-friendly text is the only book to put forward clear guidance on the surveillance for and investigation of waterborne infectious disease at the local, national, and international levels. Based on an OECD international meeting, each section is introduced by the relevant session chairs, and includes research approaches using models and innovative field experiences to provide a wide selection of ideas for others to field test or modify. Researchers will be able to use this information not only to study the epidemiology of infectious diseases, but also to investigate and prevent waterborne diseases. Drinking Water and Infectious Disease is a landmark text in both the field of waterborne disease and more generally in infectious disease epidemiology.
