More than half of this edition's chapters have new authors who are current experts in the field. Important new chapters cover patient safety, public reporting, controlling antimicrobial-resistant pathogens (especially MRSA and VRE), fungi, and healthcare-associated infections caused by newer treatments such as invasive cardiology.
