The incidence of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) has been growing steadily and has become the most common cause of healthcare-associated infection in adults in the United States.
It had been more than a decade since the last clinical practice guideline for CDI was released. A panel of experts convened by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) updated the 2010 guideline and released the report February 15, 2018. It includes significant changes in the management of CDI and addresses the evolving controversy over the best methods for diagnosis. The new guideline also incorporates recommendations for children.
This activity is accredited for nurses, physicians, laboratory directors, quality care coordinators and all healthcare professionals involved in the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and reporting of C. difficile.
The webinar will be available on-demand after the live portion with downloads of the transcript and educational slides posted (see Downloads). There is no charge for this activity.
