MDRO Plasmid-related outbreaks - is there anything we can do? With Jon Otter

In this week's episode, Martin talks to Dr Jon Otter, epidemiologist, scientst, blogger and Joint Director of Infection Prevention and Control at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust in the UK. We discuss a session at the recent ICPIC conference on the problems posed by plasmids in terms of outbreak detection, increasing antimicrobial resistance and environmental reservoirs. You can read more about Jon's thoughts in his excellent blog post at https://reflectionsipc.com/2023/09/14/cpe-and-plasmid-transfer-in-hospitals-what-can-we-do-a-rapid-reflection-from-icpic-2023/#more-5141
