“None of us can do this alone — All of us can do this together”
Nearly half a million Americans suffer from Clostridium difficile (C. diff.) infections in a single year according to a study released February 25, 2015 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). C. diff. is a leading cause of infectious disease death worldwide; 29,000 died within 30 days of the initial diagnosis in the USA. Previous studies indicate that C. diff. has become the most common microbial cause of healthcare-associated infections found in U.S. hospitals driving up costs to $4.8 billion each year in excess health care costs in acute care facilities alone.
Clinical professionals will gather for two days to present up-to-date data to expand on the existing knowledge and raise awareness of the urgency focused on, yet not limited to, a Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) —
- Environmental Safety
- Clinical trials and studies
- Microbiome research, studies
- Infection Prevention
- Fecal Microbiota Restoration and Transplants
- A Panel Of C. diff. Infection Survivors
- Antibiotic Stewardship
- Sepsis; Awareness, Diagnosis, Treatment, Prevention
- Nutrition and alterations in digestion
- IBS-C and IBS-D Diagnostics, Treatment
- Healthcare EXPO
……………………and much more.
The audience will not miss out on the opportunity to learn from leading
International topic experts delivering data directed at evidence-based
prevention, treatments, and environmental safety in the C. diff.
and healthcare community.
