Abstract

In national surveys of infection preventionists in Israel (n = 15), the United States (n = 415), and Thailand (n = 100), we found that views of organizational culture track well with these countries’ cultural dimension scores of power distance and individualism. Our findings highlight the importance of considering cultural dimensions when implementing infection prevention efforts.
