The 2018 ACDIS Symposium: Outpatient CDI, held November 8-9 in Orlando, Florida at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista—Disney SpringsTM area, featured presentations on all aspects of outpatient CDI. That included regulatory guidance and best practices for establishing successful programs in settings including physician practices, ambulatory, and the ED. The event also featured sessions from organizations with successful programs who shared their best practices and presentations.

Please note that the 2019 ACDIS Symposium Planning Committee has just recently kicked off their work and information will be updated as it is available.

Sessions for 2018 were chosen by the 2018 ACDIS Symposium Conference Committee, who sought to meet the needs of those who already have outpatient CDI programs as well as those who are considering programs for the future.

The 2018 event featured 14 breakout sessions split between two tracks. Click here to download the event brochure, which includes a complete agenda.

"It's Growing Season: A Fresh Way to Lead Change"

Jones Loflin

You already know how things could go at this Symposium. You’ll get excited about all the fantastic ideas you glean from the education sessions and networking with your peers. You’ll leave with a renewed sense of purpose about outpatient CDI, knowing you will be equipped to lead change in amazing ways. But then reality comes roaring back when you go home, and you slowly return to just maintaining the status quo.

What if things could be different this time? Our keynote speaker Jones Loflin says they can—if you think like a gardener. You only have to remember four words: Grow, Cultivate, Prune, and Harvest.

In this powerfully practical and engaging session, expect to learn a myriad of tips and strategies on how to move the ideas you get from the Symposium into reality once you return home, including getting others on board with your change efforts. Let’s get growing!
