Most textbooks on infectious diseases take a disease-specific and/or organ-specific approach. In this book a patient-centred approach is taken. The starting point is the patient’s presenting problem and its evolution. The focus is on clinical diagnosis and principles of management. The book comprises six parts. Part I, ‘General approach to infectious diseases’, establishes the patient-centred approach. Part II outlines presenting problems and syndromes, and Part III, infections of organ systems. These two sections highlight day-to-day problems faced by clinicians, differential diagnoses and management. Part IV covers specific infections, chosen for their importance or unique nature, and Part V deals with infectious problems in specific hosts and settings. Part VI outlines the principles of antimicrobial therapy and disease prevention through immunisation. The book concludes with a set of ‘golden rules of infectious diseases’. This is not a comprehensive infectious diseases textbook; it contains what the editors consider to be core knowledge and skills for the practising clinician. Infectious diseases in adults are the primary focus; paediatric infectious diseases are not covered in any detail. In this third edition All the original chapters have been thoroughly reviewed and updated. Three new chapters have been added: chapter 25, ‘Herpesvirus infections’, chapter 41, ‘Viral and rickettsial infections of particular relevance to Australia’, and chapter 43, ‘Infectious diseases in the South-East Asia region’. An Australasian character is evident, with the inclusion of five new authors from New Zealand and (where relevant and possible) the inclusion of data from New Zealand. The companion CD that was included in the second edition has not been retained. Senior medical students, graduates, and more experienced clinicians interested in the clinical skills of infectious diseases, will find this book refreshingly straightforward, easy to read, and rich with clinical pearls.

Presents best practices for infection prevention and control in advanced practice Emphasizes team approach for infection control Case study provided for each chapter This professional reference combines research on the best practices for infection control in clinical settings with essential information for advanced practice nurses and physician assistants. The book is organized by healthcare settings, and the coverage ranges from small practice offices to large hospitals and medical institutions. Each chapter is prefaced by a case study which is then incorporated into the theoretical material of the chapter as a continuing illustration. This format provides a reader-friendly instructional resource for advanced practice certifications and staff development. From the Foreword "At last is published a long-needed text for advanced practice nurses (APNs), providing them with the information essential to the care of essentially every patient they will encounter. Infection Control for Advanced Practice Professionals fills a void in the literature and recognizes the importance of a team approach to the prevention of infections in the variety of care settings in which APNs are practicing. The book is particularly timely and relevant because it appropriately places infection prevention solidly within the larger patient safety movement and affirms that preventing infections is everybody's concern. In acute care settings, for example, infection control has occasionally been relegated to the infection prevention specialist (e.g., infection control nurse or hospital epidemiologist) or the infection control committee. This has shown to be ineffective in any setting. It is those who "touch" the patients and oversee their care who must assume the responsibility for preventing untoward events such as infections. While not all infections are preventable, there is indeed room for improvement. This comprehensive reference is a first and essential step in that direction!"

Emerging infectious diseases may be defined as diseases being caused by pathogens only recently recognized to exist. This group of diseases is important globally, and the experience of the last 30 years suggests that new emerging diseases are likely to bedevil us. As the global climate changes, so changes the environment, which can support not only the pathogens, but also their vectors of transmission. This expands the exposure and effects of infectious disease and, therefore, the importance of widespread understanding of the relationship between public health and infectious disease. This work brings together chapters that explain reasons for the emergence of these infectious diseases. These include the ecological context of human interactions with other humans, with animals that may host human pathogens, and with a changing agricultural and industrial environment, increasing resistance to antimicrobials, the ubiquity of global travel, and international commerce. * Features the latest discoveries related to influenza with a newly published article by Davidson Hamer and Jean van Seventer * Provides a listing of rare diseases that have become resurgent or spread their geographic distribution and are re-emergent * Highlights dengue and malaria, as well as agents such as West Nile and other arboviruses that have spread to new continents causing widespread concerns * Includes discussions of climate influencing the spread of infectious disease and political and societal aspects

Antibiotics are usually grouped together based on how they work. Each type of antibiotic only works against certain types of bacteria or parasites. This is why different antibiotics are used to treat different types of infection.

Antibiotics are a group of medicines that are used to treat infections caused by some germs (bacteria and certain parasites). They do not work against infections that are caused by viruses - for example, the common cold or flu. Antibiotics are normally only prescribed for more serious bacterial infections, as many infections get better on their own. Correct use of antibiotics is absolutely essential to help reduce antibiotic resistance. Germs become resistant to antibiotics over time, which then makes them less effective.The World Health Organization (WHO) says "the world urgently needs to change the way it prescribes and uses antibiotics" as antibiotic resistance is a major global threat. It is important to remember that antibiotics only work against infections that are caused by bacteria and certain parasites. A parasite is a type of germ that needs to live on or in another living being (host). Antibiotics do not work against infections that are caused by viruses (for example, the common cold or flu), or fungi (for example, thrush in the mouth or vagina), or fungal infections of the skin. Microbes, Germs and Antibiotics discusses the different types of germs which can cause infections.Occasionally, a viral infection or minor bacterial infection develops into a more serious secondary bacterial infection. In this case, antibiotics would be needed. There are various antibiotics available and they come in various different brand names. Antibiotics are usually grouped together based on how they work. Each type of antibiotic only works against certain types of bacteria or parasites. This is why different antibiotics are used to treat different types of infection.

Infection prevention and control is not simply an issue for hospitals -- many infectious diseases can spread within care homes, where large numbers of people, many of whom may be susceptible to infection, share living accommodation. Infection can be a major cause of illness among residents of care homes, which can result in them being admitted to hospital. For people living in care homes in some developed countries, infection is a common cause of hospitalization. People can enter care homes colonised with organisms acquired in hospital that are resistant to antibiotics. These homes can then become 'reservoirs' of infection. This, and the fact that many people living in care homes have frequent contact with healthcare services, has created a 'revolving door' situation, where people are readmitted to hospital for conditions that could be managed within a care home.
