This study investigates infection prevention and control (IPC) practices among physiotherapy professionals in diverse healthcare settings. A cohort of 195 participants provides insights into IPC knowledge, attitudes, and practices. Results reveal varying levels of adherence to IPC guidelines, influenced by factors such as workload and resource availability. While a significant proportion demonstrates adequate knowledge, adherence to IPC practices shows room for improvement. These findings underscore the importance of targeted interventions to enhance IPC training and support among physiotherapy professionals, thereby mitigating healthcare-associated infection risks and ensuring safer patient care environments.
