Description

This indispensable handbook continues to be the go-to source for best practices for treating and preventing the spread of infection in children in day care and preschool.

This book provides child care and preschool providers, pediatricians, family practitioners, and public health officials with an up-to-date, easy to read reference on infections and infection control for children in day care and preschool. The book covers both common and unusual infections and illnesses prevalent in this population, and offers practical guidance on issues of contagion, treatment, and transmission in this setting. Chapters also address special considerations for children who are at high risk of acquiring infection, or at risk of spreading infection in the daycare arena. The authors are infectious disease specialists who have spent their careers working in the areas they have written about, and they offer specific recommendations on how to deal with endemic problems of infection and transmission.
