The following proposal is submitted by the AICA's credentialling and certification subcommittee for your consideration. It outlines a process and procedure for interim credentialling of infection control practitioners. In submitting this proposal, the subcommittee acknowledges that, while competency-based education is the preferred process for credentialling, there are clinicians who, in the absence of educational opportunities, have developed a specialist level of competency in infection control practice through self education and experience. Committee members also recognise the need for self-regulation of accrediting processes, to maintain standards in practice and support members in their clinical roles. We ask you to review the following proposal and invite your comments and critique, to be received by the last week in January 1998.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
