Who We Are

The APIC Text is overseen by Clinical Editors, a group of nine professionals selected by APIC for their expertise and authority in the field of infection prevention and control. Clinical Editors regularly review chapters and decide where updates need to be made based on changes in guidelines, regulations, and best practices; they also select chapter authors. Before publication, each chapter is peer reviewed by at least two Clinical Editors.
