Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Infection control is the responsibility of everyone who works within health care systems (Department of Health (DH) 2006a). In this chapter the theories that underpin high-quality infection control practice will be explored. The intention is to enable you to understand the theoretical components and how to adopt these into your everyday practice. It is anticipated that your current thinking about infection control will be challenged and in doing so, you will have a more informed perspective on this speciality.
