Abstract:

A national survey of infection preventionists was conducted in Thailand to assess career satisfaction, perceived barriers to implementing infection control practices and current sources of continuing education. Despite positive career satisfaction, several barriers were identified, including a lack of physicians to champion infection control efforts and difficulty remaining current with new evidence-based recommendations.
