bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics

Each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections. It’s critical that all healthcare workers understand proper infection control procedures and use them every day.

Although healthcare facilities and infection control experts have made significant progress in preventing some types of infections, there is still a great deal of work to do.

CDC and Medscape have launched a series of six CME/CE activities addressing the key issues surrounding infection prevention in healthcare facilities. These courses feature discussions with CDC and external experts in infection prevention.

Target audience:

  • Primary care physicians
  • Public health and preventive medicine specialists
  • Emergency medicine physicians
  • Pharmacists
  • Nurses
