ACSQHC sponsored a workshop on 20 August 2010 to assist jurisdictions and the private hospital sector to manage Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). Representatives of the state and territory health departments, public and private hospital sectors, laboratories, infection prevention professional associations and members of the ACSQHC’s HAI Advisory Committee were invited to attend

The main objective of the national workshop was to provide an understanding of hypervirulent strains of CDI and an overview of the prevalence of CDI, as well as to discuss strategic options to prevent hypervirulent CDI from gaining a foothold in Australia.
