Information Sources

References have been categorised under topics.  As this site is intended for public and patients rather than academics or professionals, IPO made the decision not to include reference numbers in the text as we believe that this could confuse and distract from the key messages which the website conveys.

The facts and figures about infection and how they are transmitted which appear in this website are repeated in many of the different sources cited. They have been included where there is general consensus and validation that the information is correct.

IPO decided that it was useful to the consumer to show that information on the website had been gathered from many reputable sources such as Government bodies, NHS Trusts, Patient Groups, academic research bodies rather than specifically identifying which fact or recommendation came from which source.

All the given references can be accessed online.
