Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Patients in perioperative healthcare settings are at risk of acquiring or developing infections because of the performance of invasive procedures. Serious life threatening infections can arise when micro-organisms are transmitted onto susceptible sites, such as: surgical wounds or intravascular cannulation sites. Infection control practices help to protect patients and healthcare providers by reducing and/or eliminating sources of infection.
