We are pleased to announce that the IFIC Basic Concepts of Infection Control manual is being translated into Bulgarian by the Bulgarian IC association "BulNoso". Chapters will be posted on the IFIC web site.
The initial issue of the new series BulNoso Academy of our Bulletin “Nosocomial infections” is published now, entitled "For infection prevention in hospital practice. Tool for clinicians." The first to receive the book were the participants in the 10th Congress of BulNoso. The second special issue is focused on hand hygiene in clinical practice.
'Fight antibiotic resistance - it's in your hands'
WHO urges us to focus on the fight against antibiotic resistance in the context of hand hygiene and infection prevention and control (IPC) programmes. Hand hygiene is at the core of effective IPC to combat antibiotic resistance, and campaigning each year on or around 5 May is one important part of improving behaviour towards IPC best practices. This year the campaign materials are all co-branded with ‘Antibiotics, handle with care’ to demonstrate unity between antimicrobial resistance and IPC efforts.
