Moving Toward the Elimination of Healthcare-Associated Infections: A Call to Action
This white paper was drafted by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America in 2010.
The steps to eliminate the healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) through the public health model of constant action and vigilance has been identified by the report.
The infections can be eliminated through investments in research, development of novel prevention tools, organisational and personal accountabilities and by a broad coalition of public and private stakeholders.
Other measures include adherence to evidence-based practices, translational and epidemiological research, and data to target prevention efforts.
