Invasive Fungal Infections in HSCT Recipients: Improving Outcomes Through Prevention and Treatment
Date:10/15/2009

VOORHEES, N.J., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and associated immunosuppression is linked to an increased risk of invasive fungal infections (IFIs). IFIs are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in HSCT recipients. Recent changes in the epidemiology of IFIs have led to an increased frequency of some mold-related and drug-resistant infections, both of which are linked to poor outcomes in patients. It is critical for healthcare professionals who work with HSCT recipients to be aware of novel strategies to prevent and treat IFIs, as these are likely to contribute to improved outcomes in this patient population.

To address the need for current education on prevention and treatment of IFIs in HSCT recipients, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a complimentary continuing education monograph entitled Invasive Fungal Infections in HSCT Recipients: Improving Outcomes Through Prevention and Treatment. This activity is supported by an educational grant from Schering-Plough and is designated for physicians, pharmacists, and nurses.

Pranatharthi H. Chandrasekar, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Section of Infectious Diseases at Karmanos Cancer Institute, Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan, served as faculty for this monograph.

Healthcare professionals can visit www.rmei.com/Fungal137MN to download a copy of this monograph.

"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.

RMEI is a medical education company that specializes in independent certified and non-certified education. The goal of all certified RMEI educational offerings is to promote a spirit of lifelong learning and continuous professional development.
