Researchers administered a 33-question online survey to determine respondents' infection prevention research priorities. Overall, 701 APIC members responded. The researchers found behavioral management science, surveillance standards and infection prevention resource optimization were cited as the highest priority, which remains relatively unchanged since 2000. Researchers propose additional research topics could focus on standardization in infection prevention and program resource allocation.

Researchers concluded APIC leadership can use these survey results to help guide the association's research program.
