|Arbeitskreis "Krankenhaus- & Praxishygiene" der AWMF|
Working Group 'Hospital & Practice Hygiene' of AWMF
In 1986, Dr. Rudolph and Dr. Werner initiated a working group in German speaking countries with the aim of formulating and developing practical recommendations and making these available to all relevant specialists and their academic societies, either directly or by publication. This has been achieved through cooperative discussion of the relevant issues with the respective medical specialists.
The recommendations of the working group are also intended to provide assistance in the event of legal problems, the realization of design or construction projects, and if necessary for the rejection of unreasonable claims or demand.
In May 2001 AWMF (Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany) adopted the Working Group as an institution of the association.
