    • Overview

      Residents of long-term care facilities (LTCFs) have a high incidence of  Clostridioides difficile infections (CDI). Given the financial constraints of long-term care facilities, the most cost-effective strategy for treating CDI is not always clear (especially considering the financial burden of many CDI treatments). This activity will review literature in relation to cost-effective CDI treatments and evaluate the implementation processes to determine the ideal scenarios for different CDI treatment options.
