Managing Infectious Diseases in Child Care and Schools

Description:

This reference guide is a tool to encourage common understanding among caregivers/teachers, families, and health professionals about infectious diseases in group care settings for children. It identifies the role of caregivers/teachers, families, and health professionals in preventing and controlling the spread of communicable infections, symptoms of infections commonly found in group settings for children, how infections are spread, when to seek medical attention, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and sample forms for communications involving caregivers/teachers, parents/guardians, and health professionals.

Reviewers' Notes

This accessible resource could be used by providers in after school, regular-school day, and preschool programs alike. The quick reference sheets organized by type of infectious disease and the signs and symptoms chart are particularly easy to use.
