'This book is an excellent resource for all who have an interest in the field of infection prevention and control (IPC), including nursing students ... The authors, who are IPC nurse specialists, have produced an exceptional publication with a concise and colourfully designed format that distinguishes it from many leading IPC publications. The book makes use of simple, user-friendly illustrated diagrams and text boxes that cover a variety of IPC topics and concerns faced by these specialist nurses on a daily basis ... The book is also fully referenced with national and international key documents and guidance. This refreshing read will be referred to time and time again by IPC nurses new to the profession, as well as their more experienced colleagues' - Nursing Standard- Feb 17
