Systematic review of the effectiveness of infection control measures to prevent the transmission of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae through cross-border transfer of patients
The goal of this systematic review is to update the 2011 ECDC risk assessment. Evidence from this review will be used to develop guidance on this topic.
Systematic review of the effectiveness of infection control measures to prevent the transmission of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae through cross-border transfer of patients
This systematic review seeks to identify evidence for the effectiveness of targeted infection control measures to control the spread and transmission of ESBL-E when transferring patients between healthcare settings, especially when the transfer is cross-border.
Antimicrobial resistance and healthcare-associated infections - Annual epidemiological report 2014 [2012 data]
The Annual Epidemiological Report is a key ECDC publication on the epidemiology of communicable diseases of public health significance in Europe. The 2014 edition of the Annual Epidemiological Report is being published a disease group at a time and will later be compiled into one comprehensive report.
EU protocol for case detection, laboratory diagnosis and environmental testing of Mycobacterium chimaera infections potentially associated with heater-cooler units: case definition and environmental testing methodology
This document establishes a protocol for the case detection, laboratory diagnosis and environmental testing of Mycobacterium chimaera infections which are potentially associated with heater-cooler units.
Last-line antibiotics are failing: options to address this urgent threat to patients and healthcare systems
This briefing aims to draw the attention of policymakers to examples of measures that can be taken at national and local levels to halt the spread of highly resistant bacteria, especially those resistant to ‘last-line’ antibiotics.
