Hosted by Qualis Health's Healthcare-Associated Infection team.
Preventing laboratory-identified C. difficile events is a high priority for our Learning and Action Network Hospitals. In the first half of this interactive webinar, we will discuss current options for diagnostic testing for C. difficile, the pros and cons of available options, and best practices for collecting and handling stool specimens for testing.

In the second half of this interactive webinar, we will discuss ways our Learning and Action Network hospitals are engaging and involving patients, themselves, in SSI prevention prior to elective surgeries. We will share interventions from the literature, and open the lines to hear from you about patient-centered projects you are supporting before the day of surgery.
