2018 ATO Editorial Panel

Purpose: The ATO Editorial Panel reviews and revises the APIC Text Online (ATO), APIC’s flagship resource for practice and for certification and recertification study. All content follows rigorous development and review practices. Chapter updates are identified by a number of criteria, including monthly analytics, industry trends, and activities by the CDC and other government or advisory bodies, as well as relevance to general practice, frequency of use, regulatory dimension, robustness/fragility, and consequences to direct care.
