Candida auris: An emerging threat in long-term care

Start Date:10/7/2021

Start Time:1:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes



A little over a decade after it was identified, Candida auris is a growing threat in long-term care and other healthcare settings. It has spread to six of seven continents and has been responsible for several deadly outbreaks. In 2019, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention listed C. auris as an urgent drug-resistant threat with a high mortality rate. Action is needed now to contain this rapidly emerging pathogen, including surveillance, laboratory identification, and infection control measures.

This webinar will provide a review of the scientific literature and evidence-based guidelines for controlling this novel pathogenic fungus, as well as provide key actions that long-term care operators should be doing now. 

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  1. Explain the epidemiology of C. auris
  2. Differentiate C. auris from other antimicrobial-resistant pathogens that can be found in long-term care settings
  3. Implement surveillance for C. auris into their infection control program
  4. Select appropriate infection control measures to contain C. auris in eldercare
  5. Identify the subtleties around cleaning and disinfection for this pathogen in senior care facilities

By attending this program in its entirety, you can earn 1 CE credit!
