I’ve been reviewing scientific abstracts for IDWeek, which is how I know that there is going to be a lot of excellent work presented there—if you haven’t registered, do so now!
During my review, I ran across the very succinct abstract below (I’m not making this up).
I suspect this one might not make the cut (we require a more detailed data summary). Sadly, it does sum up quite a lot of the hospital infection prevention literature. On a positive note, what makes much of the work being presented in San Diego worth hearing is the slow but steady progress our discipline is making in study design and analysis.
