WASHINGTON – In this video, infectious disease pharmacist Kerry LaPlante, PharmD, FCCP, FIDSA, discusses a presentation she gave at the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress on Clostridioides difficile infection.

LaPlante, who is department chair and a professor of pharmacy at the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy, talked about the importance of infection control and being a good antibiotic steward, and discussed innovations in C. difficile therapy, including fecal microbiota transplantation.

“Please remember to only use antibiotics appropriately and when absolutely necessary,” she said.
