Join CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden and infection control experts Dr. Michael Bell and Dr. Arjun Srinivasan from CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion to discuss how we can prevent deadly healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and make health care safer.
As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC is committed to helping all Americans receive the best and safest medical care possible. We are seeing reductions in numbers of some HAIs, but some infection types remain stagnant. In addition, we are seeing the emergence of more dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Many facilities and states have shown tremendous success in protecting patients from all types of HAIs; CDC is helping spread that success nationally.
When: Monday, March 25, 2:00-3:00PM EDT
