“The editors and authors of the new third edition of Practical Healthcare Epidemiology have produced a text that covers both the basics of infection prevention and the most important recent developments. . . . Overall, the chapters are clear and succinct, making excellent use of charts, graphs, and bulleted lists to guide the reader to essential information. Several chapters are new to this edition, including much-needed chapters on quality improvement, Clostridium difficile, and government mandates. There are many highlights, beginning with a practical chapter on how to get paid for the work of health care epidemiology. The bulleted list of "tips and tricks of the trade" in this chapter, with its practical suggestions for how to set goals and choose battles, communicate and lead effectively, and run efficient and effective meetings, is alone worth the purchase price. . . . . The infection preventionist with 10 minutes between meetings to quickly review important issues in control of C difficile will find this text valuable, as will the infectious diseases fellow wanting a readable text that reviews the essential infection control issues and the hospital epidemiologist suddenly faced with the responsibility for establishing an antimicrobial stewardship program. . . . A handy desk reference and an up-to-date primer for trainees and experts alike."--Journal of the American Medical Association

"A much-needed response to the currently tough challenges posed to healthcare epidemiologists and infection preventionists. . . . Highly recommended reading for trainees and professionals in infection control--and healthcare epidemiologists in particular."--Clinical Infectious Diseases
