Assessing the Mpox and Infection Prevention and Control Knowledge of Personal Service Establishments' Operators in Metro Vancouver Regional District of British Columbia
Keywords:Mpox, Infection Prevention and Control, Personal Service Establishment, Metro Vancouver Regional District, Regulations, British Columbia
Mpox virus, formerly known as the Monkeypox virus, is a re-emerging pathogen that causes the infectious disease Mpox. Mpox was designated as a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organization due to its rapid spread outside West and Central Africa. Personal service establishments (PSEs) could be a setting for exposure to Mpox because some of their services involve direct contact with their patrons. The aim of this research was to investigate the infection prevention and control (IPAC) and Mpox knowledge levels among PSE operators and to determine the associations between IPAC knowledge, Mpox knowledge, years of experience, and point-of-service risk assessment
