CLINICAL AND PUBLIC HEALTH MICROBIOLOGY

The microbiological processing of patient specimens and serodiagnostic analyses are fundamental to the everyday diagnosis, treatment and management of patients with infectious diseases.

Clinical microbiology laboratories process various specimens from patients, healthcare workers or elsewhere e.g. the environment. The results of their analyses can either contribute to the everyday diagnosis and management of infection in individual patients (the clinical role), or inform healthcare associated infections (HAIs) infection prevention and control/hospital hygiene (IC) interventions or antimicrobial stewardship (AS) activities (the public health/the epidemiological role). However, as we will see, these two roles are interactive.

‘public health microbiology’ is ‘a crosscutting area that spans the fields of human, animal, food, water and environmental microbiology, with a focus on human health and disease. It requires laboratory scientists with the ability to work effectively across disciplines, particularly epidemiology and clinical medicine’. Public health microbiology aims to interpret diagnostics at the population level, rather than at the level of the individual patient.
