Abstract

Literature review and the Delphi approach were used to draft the core competency items of hospital infection control nurses in Hong Kong. Content validity, internal consistency, and test-retest reliability of the proposed core competency were ensured. The result serves as the foundation of developing training and assessment tools for infection control nurses in Hong Kong.
