Learning outcomes

The teaching is focused on the assistance to patients with acute or chronic infectious problems and on the main measures for the prevention of infections in the hospital environment, in particular those in which nurses play an essential role. Particular emphasis is given to the recognition of symptoms, signs and vital signs that can configure an infectious emergency, risk factors for the acquisition of nosocomial infections and procedures to prevent their onset. Of the pathologies treated, a global and national epidemiological picture, and whenever possible a regional and local one, are provided and so are the essential notions on the modalities of transmission and on the pathophysiology; the main symptoms and clinical signs are indicated, as well as key laboratory tests and respective advantages and limitations, and some hints of therapy. The specific role and contribution of the nursing profession (as refers to assistance, prevention and education) is highlighted, especially considering high-risk patients.
