Class Description

This free, 1.5-hour interprofessional online continuing education program is available free on the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists website through May 31, 2022. The target audience is pharmacists, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners who care for patients at risk for recurrent Clostridioides difficile Infection.


This 1.5-hour interprofessional educational activity uses a point-counterpoint approach to decision making for managing special patient populations at high-risk for poor outcomes also taking into account cost-benefit considerations. Learning objectives:
  • Distinguish how current Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) therapies prevent CDI recurrence.
  • Identify patients that would benefit from fidaxomicin or vancomycin with another anti-CDI recurrence strategy.
  • Identify patient populations in which an anti-CDI recurrence strategy would be most cost effective in practice.
  • Develop an interprofessional treatment plan for recurrent CDI for special populations.
