The numbers of infection prevention and control (IPC) challenges facing today’s health care providers are not diminishing. Health care–associated infections (HAIs) continue to plague patients and the organizations that treat them, resource and infrastructure limitations and misappropriations create unnecessary obstacles for effective IPC initiatives, emerging and reemerging diseases are still in evidence, and threats of pandemics and even bioterrorism continue to demand organizational diligence. More than ever, IPC must be a priority in every health care setting in every corner of the globe.
 
Best Practices in Infection Prevention and Control: An International Perspective, Second Edition, developed in partnership with the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), is an essential IPC resource for health care organizations. It outlines Joint Commission International’s requirements for meeting IPC accreditation standards and its IPC–related International Patient Safety Goal. It offers concrete examples of compliance via several case studies in which organizations in a variety of settings have achieved sustained IPC improvements, and it offers a glimpse of future issues all organizations should be planning to address sooner rather than later. This fully updated edition provides strategies, tips, and tools for increasing IPC compliance and patient safety.
