Abstract
The art of medicine becomes science when supported by evidence. The recommended practices of infection prevention are based on scientific and epidemiologic evidence. However, most health care professionals see them as mandates and fail to incorporate them into their routine patient care activities. The core goal of this publication is to link the practices to the principles they are based on. The expectation is that understanding ofthe principles will change the practices from mandates to "should do" in the minds of health care professionals. This will lead to improvement inhealth care by preventing unintended harm to patients, co-workers and the communities at large.

Abstract
This book reviews the principles of infection control and the guidelines and standards of care in multiple countries, discussing them within the context of the practice of dentistry. The aim is to enable dental practitioners to ensure that the appropriate measures are adopted for each patient contact, thereby minimizing the risk of transmission of infection – a goal that is becoming ever more important given the threats posed by new or re-emerging infectious diseases and drug-resistant infections. Readers will find information and guidance on all aspects of infection control within the dental office: hand and respiratory hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, safe handling of sharps and safe injection practices, management of occupational exposures, maintenance of dental unit water quality, surface disinfection, and the cleaning and sterilization of dental instruments. Infection Control in the Dental Office will be an invaluable asset for all dental practitioners, including dentists, dental specialists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants.

Abstract
The Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) team is a group of health care providers within Nova Scotia Health. We focus on preventing the spread of infection on Nova Scotia Health facilities. All facilities work with 1 or more Infection Control Practitioners (ICP). Their role is to help other health care providers prevent and control infections by: providing education to all health care providers and volunteers, promoting good hand hygiene and other infection prevention and control practices, keeping track of infections, managing outbreaks, and providing guidance to health care teams on pandemic restrictions and procedures. Infection prevention and control is an important part of patient safety. About 1 in 9 patients will get an infection while in the hospital. Common infections that patients in the hospital may develop include: C. diff (linked to antibiotic use), pneumonia (lung infection), bladder infections, and wound infections. This pamphlet explains what you should expect your health care team to do to help prevent infection and what you and your visitors can do to help prevent infection. The French version of this pamphlet 1216, "Prévention et contrôle des infections", is also available.

Abstract
Les fournisseurs de soins de santé travaillent fort pour prévenir la propagation des microbes d’une personne à l’autre. Cela est important parce que certains microbes peuvent causer des infections. Les « pratiques de base » sont les mesures minimales prises en tout temps pour prévenir et contrôler les infections dans la prestation des soins aux patients. Des « précautions supplémentaires » (comme les précautions contre la transmission par contact, par gouttelettes ou par voie aérienne) sont parfois requises pour empêcher les microbes de se propager d’un patient à un autre. La présente brochure explique en quoi consistent les pratiques de base et les précautions supplémentaires.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Preventing the Spread of Germs and Infections: Routine Practices and Additional Precautions" pamphlet 1822. Health care providers work hard to prevent the spread of germs from one person to another. This is important because some germs can cause infections. “Routine practices” are the minimum steps taken to prevent and control infection in the care of all patients at all times. Additional precautions (such as contact, droplet or airborne precautions) are sometimes needed to keep germs from spreading from one patient to another. This pamphlet explains the infection prevention and control (IPAC) guidelines included in routine practices and additional precautions.

Abstract
Le rôle du département de prévention et de contrôle des infections est d’aider le personnel et les médecins à prévenir la transmission d’infections aux patients. La prévention et le contrôle des infections jouent un rôle important dans la sécurité des patients. Environ un patient sur neuf souffrira d’une infection pendant son hospitalisation. Parmi les infections que les patients peuvent attraper pendant leur séjour à l’hôpital, il y a la diarrhée causée par la bactérie C difficile, la pneumonie (une infection pulmonaire) et une infection de la vessie. Les plaies des patients peuvent aussi s’infecter. Si vous avez des questions ou des inquiétudes à propos de la prévention et du contrôle des infections, adressez-vous à l’un ou l’autre de vos fournisseurs de soins ou demandez qu’on fasse venir le professionnel en contrôle des infections de votre section.
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1441, “Infection Prevention and Control". The role of the Infection Prevention and Control team is to help other health care providers prevent and control infections by: tracking infections, promoting good hand hygiene and other infection control practices, managing an outbreak or outbreaks, and providing education to all health care providers and volunteers. Infection prevention and control is an important part of patient safety. About one in nine patients will get an infection while in hospital. Common infections may include C. difficile diarrhea, pneumonia (a lung infection), bladder infections and wound infections. This pamphlet explains what you should expect your health care team to do to help prevent infection and what you and your visitors can do to help prevent infection.
