7 JCR books named 2023 Doody’s Core Titles
Every year, nearly 200 content specialists and librarians select the books and manuals that make up Doody’s Core Titles® — a list that represents must-haves in the health science arena. In 2023, a total of 7 Joint Commission Resources (JCR) books/manuals made the cut.
The JCR-published works included in the 2023 Doody’s Core Titles collection are:
“Infection Prevention and Control in Nonacute Care Settings” — This first edition has the added distinction as an “essential purchase” by Doody’s, and covers The Joint Commission's infection prevention and control requirements for settings such as ambulatory care, office-based surgery, assisted living communities, home care, behavioral health care and human services, and nursing care centers. The book includes a full-text crosswalk of nonacute settings compared to hospital settings.
“The APIC/JCR Infection Prevention and Control Workbook, 4th Edition” — Published in collaboration with the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Prevention (APIC), this new edition — which also has been a Doody’s Core Title in 2021 and 2022 and further designated as an essential purchase in 2023 — features updated infection prevention and control practices and current accreditation standards. This workbook provides a wealth of tools, strategies, and updated information for infection control across the continuum of care.
“Infection Prevention and Control Issues in the Environment of Care, 4th Edition” — This latest edition — which also has been named a Doody’s Core Titles in 2020, 2021 and 2022 — is designed to help infection preventionists, other infection prevention and control practitioners, and physical environment professionals collaborate to design, improve, and manage an infection prevention and control program that will protect patients, staff, and visitors from the threat of infection. It explores the keys to maintaining a safe, infection-free environment, which includes reducing and controlling environmental hazards and risks. It also examines various infection risks that can be reduced through proper management of the physical environment. New topics include infection prevention and control and environment of care components of the compounding pharmacy, fogging for room decontamination, and establishing water management programs that are environmentally sustainable.
2023 Comprehensive Accreditation Manuals — Four of the annual standards manuals were included in the list. The selected manuals — available in hard copy, e-book format, and site licenses — are for hospitals, home care organizations, laboratories, and behavioral health care and human services organizations. The BHC manual also was listed as an essential purchase.
