Environmental and Professional Hygiene Policy Forum Jan 16, 2008 Downloads
A policy forum titled Environmental and Professional Hygiene was held on January 16, 2008, and was jointly sponsored by the International Society of Microbial Resistance (ISMR) and the George Mason University School of Public Policy Office of International Medical Policy (OIMP). This activity was made possible through an unrestricted grant from the Clorox Corporation, with additional support provided by ServiceMaster Clean. The goal was to use the policy forum process as a lens to sharply delineate environmental and professional hygiene policies and practices that demonstrate great promise in diminishing the scale of threat of drug-resistant infections. The objective is to marshal the evidence and outline the essential elements of policy and practice for a plan of environmental and professional hygiene stewardship.
