A Complimentary Continuing Medical Education Newsletter Series for Physicians

VOORHEES, N.J., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Management of Clostridium difficileinfection (CDI) in geriatric and pediatric populations can be challenging and complicated. Because of the observed increase in CDI incidence in many age groups, healthcare professionals need to be especially attuned to the individual needs of these patient populations.

To address the need for current education on CDI, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a complimentary continuing medical education (CME) newsletter series entitled Current Concepts in Clostridium difficile Infection. The third issue of this three-part newsletter series has just been released and is entitled Current Concepts in Clostridium difficile Infection: A Focus on Geriatric and Pediatric Patients. The newsletter series is supported by an educational grant from ViroPharma Incorporated.

Expert faculty for this CME activity include Ciaran P. Kelly, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Director of Gastroenterology Fellowship Training and Chief, Herman L. Blumgart Internal Medicine Firm at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts; and Vivian G. Loo, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Associate Professor of Medicine at McGill University and Chief of the Department of Microbiology at McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Physicians can download or order online each of the three newsletters in the Current Concepts in Clostridium difficile Infection series: A Focus on Recurrent Disease, A Focus on Severe Disease, and A Focus on Geriatric and Pediatric Patients by visiting www.rmei.com/CDInewsletters.

"Quality continuing medical education is vital to developing and increasing knowledge and skills and enhancing patient care," says RMEI President and CEO, Robert M. Colleluori.
