CME Credits: 1.25

Summary: Care provided in ambulatory settings has expanded dramatically. Infection prevention in this environment is challenging due to the large volume and rapid turn-over of patients, the increasing proportion of high-risk patients cared for in these settings, the potential for inadequate policies and procedures to prevent transmission of pathogens, and limited capacity for surveillance.
