Identifying the Gap Between Research and Practice

11:00 - 11:45

Scientific research on issues of infection is advancing at a rapid pace, but that does not necessarily mean that it is reaching clinicians in their daily practice. This session will provide an overview of scientific advances in biofilm, topical antiseptic, swab cultures and planktoic bacteria, help define contamination, colonization and other critical terms, and provide an opportunity to discuss the challenges of applying these areas to clinical practice.
