Multi-drug Resistant Organisms & Long-term Care: Local Epidemiology & Infection Control Response


Healthcentric Advisors, in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, held a webinar on Tuesday February 4, 2020 to explore the current threat of multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs).

This no-cost webinar focused on the increasing incidence of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in long-term care facilities in Massachusetts.

Speakers shared an example of a local facility-based outbreak and provided the most up-to-date infection control recommendations and resources for management of MDROs in long-term care.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants are able to:

  • Define carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other important MDROs
  • Discuss the current epidemiology and burden of MDROs in Massachusetts
  • Review infection prevention and control recommendations, including the use of Enhanced Barrier Precautions (EBP)
  • Access MDRO and infection control resources and support
