NYSPFP CDI/ASP/MRSA Webinar: Successful Hospital Strategies to Reduce C. difficile

Wednesday, February 28, 2018
3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
On February 28, NYSPFP will host a webinar on successful strategies to reduce Clostridium difficile (C. difficile). The webinar will feature speakers from Stony Brook Hospital and Mount Sinai Beth Israel––two New York hospitals that have reduced and maintained low C. difficile Infection (CDI) rates through:
• Enhanced testing protocols supported by changes in the electronic medical record
• Engagement of the multi-disciplinary team in a root cause analysis for each patient
• A more robust antibiotic stewardship program (ASP)

NYSPFP ASP faculty will participate in the webinar to answer hospitals’ questions about their internal processes for ASP or CDI reduction. Such processes should include policies that support optimal antibiotic use, broad interventions for improved antibiotic use, pharmacy-driven interventions, and infection- and syndrome-specific interventions.

NYSPFP ASP Faculty
• David Calfee, MD, MS, Chief Hospital Epidemiologist, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center
• Teresa Lubowski, Pharm D, BS, Pharmacist-Quality Improvement at IPRO

Speakers

Representatives will be present from the infection prevention teams from Stony Brook Hospital and Mount Sinai Beth Israel.
