C.difficile Guidelines

This advice document is a revised version of the ‘Guidance on Management of Clostridium difficile’ document (PHA, 2010).

The document provides a standardised evidence-based approach to the diagnosis, management, treatment and Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) precautions required when caring for a patient/resident with Clostridium difficile Infection (CDI).

In addition to information about Clostridium difficile, this document provides you with a number of tools and resources as appendices to assist and support Care Home staff in managing a patient/resident with CDI.
