MDRO Collaborative Participants
The MDRO Collaborative was created for the purpose of bringing together acute care (hospitals) and long-term care facilities to prevent the spread of health care- associated (HAI) multi-drug resistant infections(MDRO) in Vermont.
The Vermont Department of Health HAI team created three webinars to be used as educational tools when explaining the work of the collaborative. Please click on the links below to watch the webinars.
