Using genome sequencing to combat healthcare outbreaks
from Contagion Live
Often people think infection prevention and control is just reminding people to wash their hands and disinfect things. While these are core components to infection prevention, another piece that people often fail to recognize is epidemiology. When the "prevention" aspect of our work has failed, we move to the "control" components. Controlling the spread of an infectious disease can be challenging, therefore, understanding the transmission dynamics and source of the infection is critical.
