Process Document: Existing and emerging technologies used for decontamination of the healthcare environment

Publication Date: 07 August 2017

Health Protection Scotland (HPS) applies strict inclusion and exclusion criteria to select the research studies used to provide evidence for environmental decontamination technologies. Articles should have undergone a formal peer-review process to ensure that the necessary information (e.g. population characteristics, outcome measures) is reported. This process also ensures that sources of funding and potential conflicting interests are declared, and that original data are not being represented in a misleading format.
