Role of nurses in infection prevention and control in health care setting
Infection prevention and control (IPC) is a practical, evidence-based approach which prevents patients and health workers from being harmed by avoidable infection and as a result of antimicrobial resistance. No one should catch an infection while receiving health care, yet, these infections can spread through outbreaks and many regular care practices, affecting hundreds of millions of people across the world every year. Infection prevention and control is one of the first topics introduced in nursing programs, yet its main tenets are often lost or forgotten.
