Reducing healthcare–associated infections requires an integrated effort from all staff responsible for patient care, including laboratorians. This presentation will discuss the laboratory’s critical role in this endeavor, as well as important diagnostic tests that can facilitate infection control decisions.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- • Locate recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for infection control of multidrug-resistant pathogens.
- • Identify infection control decisions that are most likely to require special laboratory testing.
- • List tests that can guide infection control decisions.
