  • Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Scientific Director and Microbiology, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
    Biography

      Dr. Morgan has over 30 years of laboratory experience first as a bench technologist and then laboratory director. Her professional focus has been antimicrobial stewardship, Clostridium difficile diagnostic strategies and infection control measures, and application of molecular methods to the microbiology laboratory. These interests have led to over 100 abstracts and publications. Dr. Morgan earned her BS in Medical Technology at the University of Oklahoma, and her PhD in Medical Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Campus. She obtained a Fellowship in Clinical Microbiology at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN). She is certified by the American Board of Medical Microbiology. She has been twice awarded the Golden Apple Award for teaching Medical students, Pathology residents and Infectious Disease Fellows at Cedars-Sinai medical center. She has spoken at numerous regional and national meetings, presented numerous national webinars, and she is the past president of her local ASM chapter (SCASM), and hosts a microbiology blog on the internet for the review of microbiology, "Microbes with Dr. Morgan". Dr. Morgan is a Professor in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Director of the Microbiology Laboratory at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she has worked for 34 years.


    Abstract
    DATE:   February 28, 2019
    TIME:    10:00am PST, 1:00pm EST
     
    Over the past few years the gastroenterology diagnostic market has witnessed an increase in commercial multiplex diagnostic assays for the detection of a large array of enteric pathogens. These multiplex assays differ in many aspects, one important difference being the number of enteric pathogens that the assays detect. Updated IDSA/SHEA guidelines for the management of infectious diarrhea describe a targeted approach, directing proper test utilization for the diagnosis of infectious diarrhea. The guidelines can assist with the development of targeted testing algorithms to diagnose the enteric pathogens most likely causing disease. This patient centric targeted testing approach can be supported by using the BD MAX ™ system, which uses separate testing panels for the detection of C. difficile, bacterial, parasitic, and viral pathogens.
     
    By the end of this presentation one will:
    • Understand how updated guidelines can be used to direct patient testing for infections diarrhea
    • Recognize the value and ability to target testing for C. difficile, bacterial, parasitic and viral pathogens.
