Educational aims and objectives: Despite the development of powerful antibiotics and antiviral agents microbial infection still claims more human lives worldwide than any other disease process. Thanks to public health measures and rigorous immunisation programmes the situation in Britain is a great deal better than in many other less well developed countries. Infection nevertheless remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality both in the community and in hospitals. This RSM conference is intended to define the situation in present-day Britain, to look at current and projected immunisation programmes, to examine the safety record of vaccines, to highlight new advances in diagnostic techniques and to look at some of the consequences of acute and chronic infections.
Who should attend: The information to be presented will be of interest to all in the health care profession and of special interest to general practitioners, physicians, community and hospital based paediatricians, public health doctors and officials, community practice and hospital nursing staff and clinical research personnel.
