Spatial clusters of Clostridium difficile infection and an association with neighbourhood socio-economic disadvantage in the Australian Capital Territory, 2004-2014

Lal, Aparna; Swaminathan, Ashwin; Holani, Teisa

Description

Background In Australia, rates of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) in all States and Territories have increased significantly since mid-2011, with rates of infection increasing faster in the community setting than within hospitals. Knowledge about the risk factors for CDI is essential to determine the risk of community outbreaks of CDI and to design interventions that reduce those risks.
