We are proud to announce that the surveillance toolkit developed by the NeoIPC Consortium has been featured in a CORDIS news article, Keeping infection at bay for high-risk newborns.
CORDIS, which stands for Community Research and Development Information Service, is the European Commission’s primary source of results from the projects funded by the EU’s framework programmes for research and innovation, including Horizon 2020. This is a great opportunity to share the work of the NeoIPC Consortium with policymakers and the rest of the European research community. It will ensure that our project results, when available, are available to many.
The surveillance toolkit, which is available free of charge, offers NICUs the tools they need to collect data on infection rates and risk factors, based on which they can make evidence-based decisions about their IPC strategies. It has been developed by experienced researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and project partners St George’s, University of London (United Kingdom), Osakidetza – Servicio Vasco de Salud (Spain) and Stellenbosch University (South Africa).
