APIC Conference to Discuss MRSA Elimination
Date:10/29/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As a follow up to last year's highly successful conference to study methods of eliminating Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the Association for Professionals in Infection Control (APIC) will reconvene over two days next month in Atlanta to discuss new developments and strategies aimed at the elimination of the microorganism.

"MRSA: The Call to Action 1 Year Later," is the subject of APIC's November 5-6 conference in Atlanta, Georgia at which hundreds of infection prevention professionals and epidemiologists from all over the country are expected to examine the successes and emerging data designed to fight and even eliminate MRSA from healthcare institutions around the globe.

Earlier this year APIC made worldwide news when it released the results of a nationwide first-of-its-kind research study that examined the prevalence of MRSA in over 1,200 US hospitals. Results found that MRSA was even more prevalent in American Hospitals than had initially been thought by healthcare professionals and has increasingly risen over the past decade.

Now, infection prevention professionals, physicians, epidemiologists and healthcare professions involved in the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases will convene to not only further analyze APIC's findings, but to also discuss innovative means and trends to suppress and even eradicate the colonization of all multi-drug resistant organisms, not just MRSA. The two-day conference covers a wide spectrum of infection prevention throughout the world, including a look at the impact increased legislation and standards are having on clinical practices. Chief among the numerous objectives of the conference is the identification of evidence-based practice and guidance for the elimination of MRSA transmission in hospital settings.

Addressing attendees between November 5-6 are Kathy Aureden, MS, MT, CIC, epidemiology coordinator, Sherm
