Infect Control Hosp Epidemiol. 2021 Jun;42(6):743-745. doi: 10.1017/ice.2020.1272. Epub 2020 Oct 20.


Strategies for pandemic preparedness and response are urgently needed for all settings.

ICM for pandemic preparedness was feasible and contributed to an increase in COVID-19 knowledge and comfort.
