Infection Prevention Update
Topics of discussion will include:
- Common Communicable Diseases in Pediatrics - Content includes signs/symptoms of Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Cytomegalovirus, and Pertussis; methods of preventing cross - transmission.
- Multiple Drug Resistant Organisms (MRSA, VRE, ESBL) - Lecture will define the epidemiology and virulence factors; address infection control environmental aspects and discuss the treatment modalities for MDROs.
- Clostridium difficile (C diff) - C. diff spores leave the body through an infected person's diarrhea. The spores can then contaminate surroundings. The spores can also be spread through the air (during bed-making for example). The spores are able to survive for a long time outside of the body unless they are destroyed through very thorough cleaning.
