Reflecting on the many memorable moments of ID Week 2016, Dr. Dan Sexton's SHEA Lectureship stands out. His call for more data driven decisions in infection prevention resonated with me.
To quote Dr. Sexton: ' Too many healthcare workers rely on confidently held misinformation.' This misinformation is one of the greatest threats to infection prevention and safety. I could not agree more.
Although I did very little tourism in New Orleans, I did come across a gem of an independent bookstore, in the French Quarter. Packed with books and owned by a knowledgeable bookseller.
For a bibliophile, Livres D'Arcadie was the icing on the ID Week cake.
