Infection Prevention – 2017’s Upcoming Conference in UAE

Infection Prevention and Control Symposium

Infection control is a vast and broad subject and it is relevant to all countries in the world. In 2011 a total of 721,800 suffered due to infection in US Hospitals which is a huge number. The same year England also saw 300,000 to be infected.

But Infection can be prevented and controlled to certain extent and to be specific, the problem can be reduced by more than 70% by proper method. That is why Infection prevention and control is so relevant.

The most common type of infections is,

• Pneumonia
• UTI
• Gastrointestinal Illness
• Primary Bloodstream Infections
• Surgical site infections from any inpatient surgery

This is a comprehensive learning experience that assists healthcare professionals to learn about the role of environment in disease transmission and how to implement standard and transmission-based precautions to prevent the spread of antibiotic resistant bacteria and other infections in the clinical settings.
