Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare
The Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Health Care were jointly developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care and the National Health and Medical Research Council. The guidelines provide evidence-based recommendations in relation to the critical aspects of infection prevention and control, focusing on core principles and priority areas for action. When implementing these recommendations all healthcare facilities need to consider the risk of transmission of infection and implement according to their specific setting and circumstances.
