Date:1/19/2009

A Complimentary Continuing Education Virtual Lecture for Healthcare Professionals

VOORHEES, N.J., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is increasingly being seen in older adults, especially among residents of long-term care facilities (LTCFs). This is further complicated by the emergence of a virulent strain of C. difficile associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality.

Implementing strategies for prevention and control, early diagnosis and prompt aggressive treatment is critical in managing CDI.

To address the need for current education on CDI, especially among healthcare professionals working in LTCFs, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a complimentary continuing education Medscape virtual lecture entitled, "Clostridium difficile Infection in Long-Term Care: Tailored Approaches to Management." This virtual lecture offers continuing education credit for physicians, pharmacists and registered nurses and is supported by an educational grant from ViroPharma Incorporated.

Donald Kaye, MD, MACP, Professor of Medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Kurt B. Stevenson, MD, MPH, Associate Professor in Internal Medicine and Associate Director of Clinical Epidemiology at Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio will serve as faculty for this activity.

Healthcare professionals can access the virtual lecture at http://cme.medscape.com/viewprogram/18692.

Healthcare professionals working in LTCFs should take advantage of this opportunity to learn important insights and guidelines for managing this rapidly changing disease.
