Growing trends involving drug-resistant microbes and hospital-acquired infections that can result in complications, morbidity, and death are concerning healthcare providers.

FDA has responded to increased infection rates with guidance and numerous recommendations for industry as the agency intensifies its scrutiny of product design and use. Our panel of experts will address:
