SHEA Spring 2015 Conference - Back to the Future!

Wanted to give you all a quick update as we edge ever closer to SHEA 2015 in Orlando. As many of you know, SHEA 2015 has a new format - closer to 2011 and earlier SHEA meetings. Specifically, we will have HAI-focused scientific abstracts  - both posters and podium presentations. This year, we accepted ~250 top-notch abstracts and 41 will be delivered as podium presentations. Very exciting!


1) Registration has already exceeded 2014 - register now to get the best (closest) hotel rooms
2) There are eight oral abstract sessions including ones on SSI, Hand Hygiene and Contact Isolation, MDR-GNR, CDI, Devices and Public Reporting, MRSA and Emerging HAI-Pathogens, and Long-Term Care. 
3) This year we will have a Top Abstracts in Hospital Epidemiology session. The top 5 abstracts will be presented on Sunday morning.  Don't miss that session - some really great studies.
4) The meeting will still contain the highly successful and popular SHEA/CDC Certificate Training Course in Healthcare Epidemiology. You just select that you will attend the course when you register.
5) NEW THIS YEAR: SHEA Certificate Course in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Track. This 2-day course (Thursday and Friday - May 14th and 15th) will provide an up-to-date review of the latest epidemiology of HAI in LTC and you'll also get a SHEA Certificate for taking the course.
6) THERE WILL BE SNACKS - breakfast, lunch and snacks are included with your registration.

See you May 14-17, 2015 in Orlando!
