This page contains the surveillance protocol for the core module of the NeoIPC surveillance, which covers surveillance of nosocomial infections in Very Low Birth Weight (VLBW)/Very Preterm (VPT) Infants. It is part of a toolkit for the surveillance of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) in neonatology. This protocol provides methodological reference and support for HAI surveillance in neonatal units or for those planning to develop an HAI surveillance programme.
The “Training” section provides training material for the sites which are planning to perform infection surveillance in neonatology using the methods and toolkit of the NeoIPC surveillance (core module).
