VOORHEES, N.J., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a serious condition that causes disease with a wide spectrum of severity, ranging from mild diarrhea to pseudomembranous colitis and death. Recurrent CDI can occur in up to 20% of patients who develop an initial case of CDI.(1) These patients are at increased risk of additional recurrences, as well as more complicated disease, including toxic megacolon, colon perforation, and systemic inflammatory response syndrome with organ failure leading to colectomy or death.

To address the need for education on recurrent CDI, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a 3-part series of complimentary educational newsletters targeted to primary care physicians. Current Concepts in Clostridium difficile Infection: A Focus on Recurrent Disease is the first newsletter of this series.

The Expert Faculty for this continuing education activity include Ciaran P. Kelly, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Director of Gastroenterology Fellowship Training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Chief of Hermann L. Blumgart Internal Medicine, and Vivian G. Loo, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Chief of the Department of Microbiology at McGill University Health Centre.

Healthcare professionals can receive this self-study activity by downloading or ordering online at http://www.rmei.com/CDInewsletters.

Healthcare professionals who treat patients with CDI should take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the management of patients with recurrent CDI.

This continuing education opportunity is jointly sponsored by Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and
