New Clinical Practice Guidelines for Clostridium difficile Infection

Wilcox, Mark H. MD

Collapse Box

Abstract

The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America and the Infectious Diseases Society of America have recently issued updated evidence-based guidelines on the epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and infection control and environmental management of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in adults. The guidelines were issued to reflect the marked changes in the epidemiology and manifestations of CDI during the past decade (and since a Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America guideline on CDI was published in 1995). This review highlights key recommendations from the new guidelines.
