Diagnosis, prevention and treatment of fungal infections

Dinah Gould Professor in applied health, School of Health Sciences, City University, London

Nurses working in primary care are likely to see patients with superficial fungal infections and are well placed to offer advice about treatment and measures to prevent the spread of infection in the home.
