(previously Basics of Microbiology)
More than 200,000 patients get infections every year while receiving healthcare in Canada; more than 8,000 of these patients die as a result. This newly revised and updated Quick Self Study reviews the basics of the chain of infection: source, modes of transmission and susceptible host – with emphasis on your role, as a healthcare professional, in breaking the chain. Terminology and methods currently used in Infection Prevention and Control of a variety of microorganisms is included, as well as resources that will allow you to keep up to date with emerging pathogens and the threat of antimicrobial resistance.
