Innovative Tool Offers Expert Guidance to Help Prevent Infections in Children

A new comprehensive resource provides practical, expert guidance for the urgent fight against healthcare-associated infections in children across a wide range of medical settings. Available to pre-order now, the Handbook of Pediatric Infection Prevention and Control fills an important gap in the healthcare field by addressing the nuances and challenges specific to preventing infections in children, from the clinic to the intensive care unit and beyond.

“Children are not just tiny adults, and this impacts many aspects of their medical care, including infection prevention,” said handbook co-editor Kristina A. Bryant, MD, professor of pediatrics in the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Louisville and the healthcare epidemiologist at Norton Children’s Hospital. “This book offers practical guidance and solutions for the unique infection prevention challenges that providers encounter in pediatric settings on a daily basis.”

Developed by the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, the world’s largest organization focused on the treatment, control, and eradication of infectious diseases that affect children, the handbook addresses various infections and related issues across the spectrum of healthcare settings, from acute care hospitals and ambulatory practices to long-term care facilities. Covered topics include respiratory pathogens, surgical site infections, multidrug-resistant organisms, C. difficile, norovirus, device-associated infections, and antimicrobial stewardship, among many others.
