During the Health Care-Associated Pneumonia Summit conducted in June 2007, it was found that there is a need for educational efforts in several areas of health care-associated infections (HAI) that extend beyond pneumonia. This supplement to Clinical Infectious Diseases represents the proceedings of the HAI Summit, a diverse panel of clinical investigators whose goal was to assess the quality of evidence regarding issues surrounding HAI and to discuss potential implications for its diagnosis and treatment in the future.
