    Abstract

    DATE:  December 3, 2019

    TIME:  11:00am PST

    This talk will cover Candida auris infection, colonization, and spread, through health care systems from a clinical case perspective. We will discuss clinical lab diagnostics for specific organism identification and how microbiology labs can implement both passive and active surveillance. The talk will also cover current CDC recommendations for limiting the spread of Candida auris.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discuss the spread of Candida auris through health care systems.
    • Describe how the microbiology laboratory can assist in limiting Candida auris infections.
    • Detail the challenges in accurately identifying Candida auris from culture.

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.

     

    LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
