Infection control is an essential part of good clinical practice and health and safety management. It is of increasing importance to all health care workers due to public and professional concern about the transmission of bloodborne viruses such as HIV and hepatitis.
This interactive CD-ROM updates the British Medical Association's (BMA) report A Code of Practice for the Sterilisation of Instruments and Control of Cross Infection and draws from other BMA publications to provide a practical guide to preventing cross-infection in the health care setting. It provides a general introduction to the main bloodborne viral hazards and includes information on universal precautions, emergency advice following sharps injury, and post-exposure prophylaxis. Case studies from leading journals and a searchable bibliographic database make this an invaluable training aid for all health care students and staff who may be exposed to bloodborne viruses during their training and daily work.
