Parker, M.J., and Goldman, R.D. (2006). Paediatric Emergency Department Staff Perceptions of Infection Control Measures Against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. Emergency Medicine Journal. 23(5):349-53.
Pediatric emergency department staff completed a questionnaire to assess their perceptions of infection control measures against SARS. The authors found that perception of an agent as a significant public health threat improved compliance with infection control measures. Perception of effectiveness of infection control measures did not improve compliance.
