FRI05 - Preparing for Candida auris: Infection Prevention for a Transmissible Fungus


Dec 12, 2019 3:20pm ‐ Dec 12, 2019 3:50pm

Description

The emerging drug-resistant fungus Candida auris is a yeast that breaks the mold. From an infection prevention perspective, it behaves more like bacteria in its ability to colonize skin, survive on healthcare surfaces, and spread between patients, causing outbreaks.

This session will cover what we know—and what we don’t—about C. auris and current recommendations for early detection and infection prevention. In particular, it will cover the similarities and differences in containing spread of C. auris vs. other multidrug-resistant organisms and address common myths. You will learn:

  • What to do if a C. auris case is detected in your facility
  • The key interventions for preventing spread
  • Some of the known unknowns about this emerging pathogen
