Society guidelines for best practices

Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control is pleased to announce a new collection where associated societies are able to make their guidelines available to a broader audience. These guidelines were prepared by the societies and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control or its Editors.

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have been checked by reviewers for major discrepancies with the existing literature, however, the society stays responsible for the content of their guidelines.

View all collections published in Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control.
