An estimated 4.1m European patients are affected by Healthcare Acquired Infections (HCAIs) every year. Increasing resistance of bacteria to existing drugs and a lack of new antibiotics is a major concern for all healthcare institutions.
The Infection Prevention and Containment Conference looks at the future impact of this issue and how best practice in the areas of hand hygiene, compliance, monitoring, room sterilisation and water treatment can be used to fight the causes of HCAIs.
“Healthcare-associated infections are still a very real threat to patients, their families, carers and staff.” Prof Gillian Leng, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence – NICE for BBC.
The European Centre for Disease Control estimates that 20-30% of infections could be avoided with education and implementation of best practice. This conference pays special consideration to both best practice and cost effective solutions, offering guidelines for infection control that will support and add to NHS Trust policies.
