Cochrane rapid review on health care worker adherence to infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance

In response to Covid-19, Cochrane has carried out a rapid review of factors influencing health care workers’ adherence to infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance, led by Evidence Synthesis Ireland.

As part of this work, the review authors have developed a series of implementation considerations for health facilities and others:

The summarised implementation considerations could be highly relevant to people currently planning or implementing IPC strategies. Please help us disseminate this summary to relevant environments.
