Establishing innovative approaches for optimal infection prevention of resistant bacteria in NICUs by integrating research, implementation science and surveillance in a sustainable global platform

Project description

New approach protects neonatal intensive care units from resistant bacteria

Critically ill babies are highly vulnerable to drug-resistant bacteria. The EU-funded NeoIPC project therefore focuses on the prevention and management of resistant bacterial colonisation and infection in neonatal intensive care units. Researchers will develop and implement an innovative approach for evaluating infection prevention and control (IPC) interventions, combining a randomised trial with the assessment of a suitable implementation science strategy and novel targeted clinical and genotypic surveillance. NeoIPC will also devise Europe-wide network strategies for improving IPC in routine neonatal care. The project will thus provide globally transferable methods for reducing hospital transmission of resistant pathogens, promoting collaborative research and IPC implementation efforts with a broad and long-lasting impact for critically ill newborns and infants.
