Council member Q&A: Inpatient CDI expansion

ACDIS Associate Editorial Director Linnea Archibald sends out “missed connections” emails with questions from Council members on a regular basis. Anyone with experience related to one of the questions was invited to respond and Archibald connected them with the question-asker. In order to share the information more broadly, Archibald will be compiling the answers to popular topics in Q&A-type articles to be published in editions of the CDI Leadership Insider.

This month’s question was submitted on August 25, 2023, and focuses on inpatient CDI expansion. Please note that questions and answers have been de-identified for the purposes of this article.
