Back to basics: Waterborne pathogens of concern in healthcare premises - their role in causing hospital acquired infections and contribution to the global increase in antimicrobial resistance
1 - 2pm,?18th?May 2022
The British Standards Institute has recently published?Water quality - Risk assessments for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other waterborne pathogens. Code of practice?to support the development of holistic and effective water safety plans. The role of?Pseudomonas aeruginosa?in the acquisition of antibiotic resistance is described by the WHO as of global critical importance but is this risk being identified and taken seriously in our healthcare premises? Is enough being done to prevent waterborne hospital acquired infections? This free webinar from RSPH, chaired by?Prof. Rodney Cartwright and given by?Dr Susanne Surman-Lee, will answer these questions.
