Robert Pratt Professor of Nursing and Director, Richard Wells Research Centre, Thames Valley University, London

An awareness of the characteristics and transmission patterns of these viruses will help nurses to understand the diverse clinical outcomes of infection and develop effective patient education and infection prevention and control strategies.
