Bacterial gastroenteritis can have many manifestations depending on the etiologic agent and underlying condition of the patient. Treatment regimens can be challenging particularly when resistant isolates are encountered. This session will examine current recommendations for managing acute bacterial gastroenteritis to include infections caused by Salmonella, Shigella, STEC, Campylobacter, Clostridium difficile, and other bacterial stool pathogens.
At the conclusion of this program, the participants will be able to:
- Discuss approaches to management of patients with bacterial gastroenteritis.
- Describe special concerns when managing gastroenteritis in select patient populations.
