According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Clostridium difficile infection (C. difficile) “has become the most common microbial cause of healthcare-associated infections in U.S. hospitals and costs up to $4.8 billion each year in excess health care costs for acute care facilities alone.” Statistics provided by the CDC suggest that C. difficile cause nearly 500,000 infections in patients in the U.S. annually. In one study noted by the CDC, among infected patients, nearly 29,000 died within 30 days of being diagnosed, and more than half of those deaths (15,000) were directly attributable to a C. difficile infection.
Dale Gerding, MD, FACP, FIDSA joins 25+ internationally recognized experts in health care, academic, and industry leaders to discuss the burden of Clostridium difficile infections (C.difficile, C.diff., CDI) and prevention, treatments, diagnostics, research, clinical trials, with Microbiome research, Infection Prevention, Irritable Bowel Syndrome treatments and clinical trials, Environmental Safety, Fecal Microbiota Restoration, Antibiotic Stewardship and more.
