Clostridium difficile Infection: Best Strategies for Care of Older Adults
Date:1/27/2009

Complimentary Continuing Education Monograph for Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners

VOORHEES, N.J., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past several years, the incidence and mortality rates of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) have increased dramatically. CDI is a serious condition, particularly in older adults. Not only are older adults at increased risk for developing CDI, they also have a higher CDI-associated mortality. It is imperative that healthcare professionals be aware of the risk factors, diagnostic considerations, and treatment strategies for CDI in this patient population.

To address the need for current education on CDI in older adults, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a complimentary continuing education monograph for registered nurses and nurse practitioners. This activity is supported by an educational grant from ViroPharma Incorporated.

Faculty for this monograph include Erik R. Dubberke, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Infectious Diseases Division of the Department of Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine and Medical Director in Infection Control at Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri and Suzanne F. Bradley, MD, Professor of Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Healthcare professionals can visit www.RMEI.com/CDI060 to access this continuing education monograph.

"Quality continuing education is vital to developing and increasing knowledge and skills and enhancing patient care," says Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC President and CEO, Robert M. Colleluori.
