Webinar: MDRO Containment Strategy Update

Oct 17, 2023 | Irene Halferty

Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) are a persistent challenge in U.S. healthcare settings, further amplified by the ability of these organisms to spread long before their detection in the lab. This emphasizes the need for efforts to prevent MDRO transmission. A prevention approach that incorporates multiple healthcare facilities can potentially limit spread more effectively than response strategies alone. Towards this end, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), has developed an MDRO containment strategy in 2019 to guide healthcare facilities, state, local, and territorial health departments as they work to limit the spread of novel or targeted MDROs.*

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), in collaboration with the CDC, hosted a webinar on Monday, October 23, 3pm-4pm ET, to provide local health departments (LHDs) with an overview of the MDRO containment strategy, highlighting recent updates made this year and discussing its implementation at the local level. The Zoom event will feature speaker Maroya Walters, an epidemiologist at the CDC, to guide the discussion.
