A survey of infection prevention and control practices among solid organ transplantation centers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

There are no standard guidelines for infection prevention and control practices among solid organ transplantation centers. To characterize the differences in infection prevention and control strategies, an electronic survey was performed in 2015 among members of American Society of Transplantation Infectious Diseases Community of Practice. These results highlight notable practice differences.
