Guide to the using the Scenarios

This website contains a number of clinical practice Scenarios to work through that are relevant to chapters 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24.
They can be undertaken from any perspective (i.e. nurse in training, IC Link Practitioner, Staff Nurse, new in post Infection Prevention and Control Nurse) and can then be adapted to make them relevant to the readerís workplace.
The reader should apply his/her own local IC policies when responding to the questions where relevant. However, there arenít necessarily any right and wrong answers to some of the questions posed. This is because there are always slight differences in the application of the evidence-base for Infection Prevention and Control between different organisations, and therefore minor differences in local policy and practice.
