Infection control is a challenge in all health care settings. Dr. Felzien will
address infection control issues in both in-patient and out-patient settings by
utilizing MRSA as a model.

He will describe its scope, as well as the clinical presentations and available
MRSA treatment options utilizing the Infectious Diseases Society of America (ISDA)
evidence-based practice guidelines . He will address infection control precautions

remains an important infection management strategy to minimize the spread of multi-drug
resistant organisms.
