Disease Awareness & Infection Control


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson.

Chapter 1 covers the concepts of pathology, types of diseases, definitions of pathogens and contamination, describes the pathogenic agents, how infection is transmitted, risk factors for disease, and the relationship between host and pathogen. This chapter emphasizes the importance of being familiar with disease, to be able to recognize different skin disorders, and how to interact with disease and infection as a massage practitioner.
