Clostridium difficile is recognized as one of the most serious healthcare-associated infections occurring around the world today. Associated infections may be mild and resolve fairly rapidly after antibiotic cessation, or may be severe, lingering and life-threatening. Emergence of a new strain, increased virulence of the old pathogen, trending patient vulnerabilities, altered healthcare practices, new reservoirs, are all contributing to the aggressive success of this not-so-glamorous superbug. The purpose of this educational program is to discuss the impact of Clostridium difficile and to describe best practices and new technologies designed to prevent its transmission.
