Abstract

Summary

The issues surrounding the prevention and control of infections are intrinsically linked with the issues associated with the use of antimicrobial agents and the proliferation and spread of MDROs. The vital work of IPC and AS programs cannot be performed independently and requires interdependent and coordinated action across multiple and overlapping disciplines and clinical settings. Deliberate strategic relationship-building actions will be required of IPC and AS program leaders to bring groups together to achieve the larger purpose of keeping patients safe from infection and ensuring that effective antibiotic therapy is available for future generations.
