Description
Despite advances in modern biology and medicine, healthcare-associated infections (HAI) have been occurring with increased incidence and severity over the last decades, becoming a major public health issue. A wide range of control strategies is already available, including hygiene measures, barrier precautions, antimicrobial stewardship, vaccination, patient isolation, cohorting, etc., based on screening programmes and surveillance systems. However, faced with the continued spread of HAI, the implementation of these strategies needs to be optimized and new control strategies must be considered and evaluated. Mathematical modelling and computer simulations are po...
