    The Risk of Measles in International Travelers and the Role of Infection Prevention

    The Risk of Measles in International Travelers and the Role of Infection Prevention

    This episode describes the risk of measles in international travelers, as well as possible risks during local spread. During the recent measles outbreak, many cases were seen from local areas in several cities in under vaccinated communities. The approach during such times should include both risk assessment and isolation of individuals who have travel-related or community-related illness, protection of vulnerable hospital populations, and close collaboration between hospitals and public health.

    Antibiotic Stewardship: Management of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Long Term Care

    Antibiotic Stewardship: Management of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Long Term Care

    According to IDSA Guidelines (2019), the prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) in residents of long-term care facilities ranges from 15% to 50%. But screening for and treating ASB these residents is not recommended. This podcast will review the evidence and rationale for those recommendations.

    GI BioFire FilmArray Assay – We’ve Got a Test and a Result, Now What?

    GI BioFire FilmArray Assay – We’ve Got a Test and a Result, Now What?

    Speakers:
    - Trevor Van Schooneveld, MD
    - Nicholas Moore, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM
    - Moderator: Krystina Woods, MD

    Summary:
    With the recent availability of BioFire FilmArray Assay, there is now the ability to detect 22 gastrointestinal pathogens from a single patient sample and obtain results within an hour. However, there have been multiple recent publications that have argued it has limited utility at 72 hrs after admission and upon repeat testing. Additionally, there are questions regarding what to do with unexpected results. This has led to some institutions limiting the availability of the assay, and others providing extensive education to clinicians in the hope that it will curb ordering of the assay. This podcast will focus on the utility of the assay, its strengths and weaknesses and whether or not clinicians should have unlimited access to ordering it.
