Collaboration and Transitions of Care to Post-Acute Settings
Thursday, August 17, 2023

Candida Auris (C. Auris) is a fungal infection that can be transmitted
in the health care setting and may cause outbreaks. When identified,
patients should receive treatment that is timely and effective. Even
with timely and effective treatment, it can lead to challenges in
transitions of care to the most appropriate setting for many of these
patients. This webinar will be led by nationally recognized infection
prevention expert, Linda Greene, RN, MPS, CIC, FAPIC, and includes
information focused on identification, preventing transmission,
treatment, and strategies for transitions of care for patients diagnosed
with candida auris.
