Title: Knowledge, source of information, and perception of Portuguese medical students and junior doctors of infection control precautions
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: Medical education should include infection control precautions (ICPs). Portuguese medical students showed reasonable knowledge in ICPs; however, contact isolation and glove and mask use should be reinforced. Only 25% referred to the curriculum as the most important information source. There was a positive association between academic year (P = .032), previous training in ICPs (P = .016), and knowledge. Main strategies proposed to acquire competences in ICPs were bedside teaching (26.9%) and curriculum and bedside teaching (20.2%).
