    Infection control

    Members of our working group are also part of the University Hospital’s infection control team, whose duties comprise, among others, surveillance of hospital associated pathogens and management of nosocomial outbreaks. Despite its focus on routine services, infection control offers plenty of opportunities for academic research:
    Topics include:

    • Exploration and implementation of hospital-wide strategies for the use of MDRO screening
    • Improvement of laboratory protocols in infection control microbiology
    • Description of outbreaks by nosocomial pathogens
    • Improvement of IT use for infection surveillance and outbreak detection
