DRAFT – Australian Infection Control Guidelines – 7 January 2010 – NH&MRC

“The NHMRC is keen to ensure that the Australian community has the best opportunity to participate in developing NHMRC reports.

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), in partnership with the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Healthcare (the Commission), has released for public comment the Australian Infection Control Guidelines: preventing and managing infection in health care (the draft Guidelines).

The draft Guidelines have been developed to assist a coordinated approach to the management of health care associated infection (HAI) in Australia by supporting the Commission’s other HAI priority program initiatives.

To facilitate this approach, the draft Guidelines are written from a care delivery perspective, focussing on safety and quality and using a risk management framework. This approach differs from the current Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) 2004 Infection control guidelines for the prevention of transmission of infectious diseases in the health care setting which are disease and setting specific.”
