In November 2002 a pilot was established with the aim of collecting data on the
numbers and types of Healthcare Associated Infection outbreaks, the numbers of patients
and staff affected, the aetiology and the control measures implemented. After reporting
in August 2003 the pilot was implemented as a full surveillance system. A report
on the fully implemented surveillance project was produced in September 2004. The
current system uses paper forms for collection of data. View an HAI outbreak report
A web-based reporting system has been developed and a pilot study is currently underway.
The protocol for web-based HAI outbreak reporting
system is available. The pilot report will be produced in the near future
and will be available on this site.
