Abstract
This publication includes the keynote addresses and plenary papers presented at a workshop on engineering controls for prevention of airborne infections among health care workers. The purpose of the workshop was to review the nature and extent of airborne transmission of infections in these workers, to review current data and new findings regarding the engineering control of airborne infections that may have relevance to occupational exposures in health care and other institutions, to identify knowledge gaps that may be filled by directed research, and to recommend a national research agenda that would close the gaps and permit reliable recommendations for protecting workers. Specific topics discussed at the sessions included airborne infection, ventilation, characterization of aerosols, characterization and control of source, building designs, and ventilation designs.
