Innovation at VA: preventing the spread of multi-drug resistant organisms


At VA, innovation is a priority. And as a part of this commitment, we’re leading efforts to prevent the spread of dangerous multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs), which cause infections that are very difficult to treat. It’s all detailed in a series of articles that were featured in the February issue of Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology.

In addition to identifying key knowledge gaps, the articles set a research agenda in four areas: transmission dynamics, antimicrobial stewardship, the microbiome, and special populations. Not only does this guide VA’s work, it also serves as a starting point for other health care systems. Our hope is that together we can develop best practices to be implemented at hospitals and other strategic locations nationwide.

This is just one of the many ways VA is working to advance patient care. If you share our passion for innovation, consider joining our team. You’ll receive outstanding benefits along with access to state-of-the-art technology, cutting-edge research and much more. Above all, you’ll enjoy the unmatched fulfillment that comes with making a difference in Veterans’ lives.
