Clinical Research Coordinator, Bobby Warren, worked with Drs. Becky Smith, Dev Anderson, and Nick Turner and staff from Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology and NC School of Science and Mathematics to measure the efficacy of UV-C disinfection in hyperbaric chanbers in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology.
Antimicrobial resistance is a major challenge for modern healthcare. The Duke Center for Antimicrobial Stewardship and Infection Prevention includes a unique portfolio of programs to fight this growing problem. We at CDC look forward to continuing our collaborations with Duke to help protect patients.
Dr Anderson and colleagues in the Duke Center for Antimicrobial Stewardship and Infection Prevention are world leaders in the important and essential fight to prevent infections and antimicrobial resistance. They are truly providing the 'guiding lights' and leadership for all to follow in this mission.
The Duke Center for Antimicrobial Stewardship and Infection Prevention is an important source for education and programmatic support for hospitals in the Southeastern US. In addition, their research on the epidemiology of multidrug-resistant pathogens and enhancing antibiotic stewardship is of high quality and public health value. I look forward to collaborating with Dr. Anderson and his expert colleagues for years to come.
