This PDC will provide the basic framework for understanding the principles of the management, evaluation and control of waterborne pathogens (such as Legionella, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, etc.) in various water systems for the purposes of infection control. The main emphasis of the course will be placed on technical strategies for environmental exposure and risk assessment in order to provide an understanding of data collection and interpretation in support of environmental source identification. Particular attention will be paid to environmental sampling and evaluation techniques and chemical or physical treatment approaches designed to control waterborne pathogens in water systems. A combination of in-depth discussion, lecture, hands-on exercise with real data sets, and review of case studies will equip the attendees with a breadth of resources to meet learning objectives. International standards and guidelines will also be covered along with a review of the current research involving waterborne pathogens.
