Introducing Bug of the Month

Article

Infection Control Today is bringing back a much-loved feature, Bug of the Month, which helps educate readers about existing and emerging pathogens of clinical importance in healthcare facilities today. 

Each column explores the Bug of the Month's etiology, the infections it can cause, the modes of transmission, and ways to fight its spread. The pathogen profiles will span bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic species.

We encourage you to use Bug of the Month as a teaching tool to help educate healthcare personnel and start a dialogue about about microbiology-related imperatives.
