 Program Description
The target audience of this presentation is a combination of clinical microbiology personnel, infection preventionists, hospital epidemiologists, and the hospital administrators who make decisions about clinical practice. This presentation addresses an important area of collaboration between the hospital clinical microbiology laboratory and the hospital infection prevention department.  In the detection and management of multidrug resistant organisms, this interaction must be a multi-step dialog and both departments must appreciate the needs of the other. The speaker intends to follow the process of developing a best-practice program for control and prevention of multidrug resistance while playing each department's role so each department understands the implications of the decisions on the other department.


Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:

  •  list the most significant multidrug resistant pathogens, their reservoirs, and how they are transmitted
  •  implement the proven methods to reduce the risk of MDRO infections
  • select the best practices to reduce the risk of MDRO infections for their practice setting


This resource is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Roche, a Strategic Partner.
