  1. 1. Antibiotic Resistance in Wastewater : Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)and antibiotic resistance genes

    Author : Stefan Börjesson; Per-Eric Lindgren; Johanna Ericson Sollid; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MRSA; SCCmec; spa typing; Staphylococcus aureus; methicillin; B-lactam; aminoglycoside; tetracycline; antibiotic; wastewater; wastewater treatment plant; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : A large part of the antibiotics consumed ends up in wastewater, and in the wastewater the antibiotics may exert selective pressure for or maintain resistance among microorganisms. Antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes encoding antibiotic resistance are commonly detected in wastewater, often at higher rates and concentrations compared to surface water. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular epidemiology of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus : epidemiological aspects of MRSA and the dissemination in the community and in hospitals

    Author : Carolina Berglund; Bo Söderquist; Teruyo Ito; Ulf Tidefelt; Johanna Ericson Sollid; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA ; community-acquired MRSA CA-MRSA ; staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec SCCmec ; multilocus sequence typing MLST ; horizontal transfer; Panton Valentine leukocidin PVL ; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Methicillin-resistenta Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) som bär på genen mecA, har förekommit och spridit sig över hela världen, främst i sjukhusmiljö, och orsakat utbrott av vårdrelaterade (så kallade nosokomiala) infektioner. Dessa infektioner kan inte behandlas med stafylokock-penicilliner och MRSA-bakterierna är ofta resistenta även mot flera andra grupper av antibiotika vilket medför att infektionerna ofta är påtagligt svårbehandlade.

  3. 3. MRSA and other resistant bacteria : prevalence, patient and staff experiences, wounds and infection control

    Author : Helene Andersson; Bjöörn Fossum; Christina Lindholm; Mats Kalin; Eva Johansson; Sophiahemmet Högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRSA; VRE; ESBL; Colonization; Infection control; Wound; Patient experiences; Staff experiences; Nursing care; Qualitative interview; Qualitative content analysis; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MRSA;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance has become a major and serious global problem in healthcare. Limited treatment options for infections caused by these organisms can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Consequences of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) acquisition. Patient experiences and interactions in health care and daily life

    Author : Eva Skyman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRSA; patient; experience; transmission; acquisition; source isolation; ignorance; MRSA notification card;

    Abstract : Aims. The overall purpose of this thesis was to follow up the consequences of guidelines installed to prevent transmission of MRSA in healthcare from the patients’ point of view and subsequent consequences for everyday life. Methods. Patients infected with MRSA during two time-periods were studied. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) an Unclear and Untoward Issue : Patient-Professional Interactions, Experiences, Attitudes and Responsibility

    Author : Maria Lindberg; Marianne Carlsson; Bernice Skytt; Marieann Högman; Ann Gardulf; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Attitudes of health personnel; colonization; hygiene; infection control; mixed-methods approach; MRSA; nursing care; patient-professional interaction; quality of healthcare; responsibility; The MDRB Attitude Questionnaire;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the present thesis was to investigate experiences of living with multidrug-resistant bacteria (MDRB), using methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) colonization as an illustration, and to develop and validate a tool to describe healthcare personnel’s attitudes towards patients with MDRB. A further objective was to study MRSA-colonized persons’ and healthcare personnel’s experiences of patient-professional interactions and responsibilities for infection prevention. READ MORE
