These guidelines were developed by the Steering Group of the second national prevalence study in long term care and the SARI community antimicrobial stewardship committee. Further information on the second national prevalence study can be found in A-Z/Long term care on the HPSC website. With the advent of the RCPI /HSE clinical programme on healthcare-associated infection and antimicrobial resistance, the SARI committee(s) agreed to complete its work and hand over its functions to a new committee. A new national committee was established in September 2011 under RCPI governance; the RCPI Clinical Advisory Group on Healthcare-Associated Infection. This committee has taken over the functions of the SARI National Committee - Dr. Nuala O’ Connor represents the ICGP on this national committee.
