Healthcare workers, from physicians and nurses to administrators and environmental services staff, are on the front lines of the fight against C. diff infections (CDIs).
Peggy Lillis Foundation offers two free educational guides for C. diff patients. Our C. diff Care Guide contains information to understand how to be diagnosed, what treatments are available, what to expect in the case of a severe or recurrent infection, and much more. Our Lifestyle and Nutrition Guide shows how patients can nourish themselves while battling the infection, manage the mental and emotional strain from a CDI, and replenish their gut microbiome, including 20 recipes developed by C. diff survivors.
Please choose one or both of the buttons below to request each of the guides, and you’ll receive an email with a link to download the guide you requested.
Presentations and Workshops
PLF leads presentations and workshops for healthcare workers across the country. Recent partners include Making A Difference in Infectious Diseases, the World AMR Congress, and the National Quality Forum. Our co-founders and national network of advocates offer presentations on a variety of C. diff-related issues, including:
- Igniting Citizen and Healthcare Collaboration to Fight C. diff
- Lessons from Peggy’s Story
- Think of Zebras not Horses: The evolving C. diff patient profile
- Effective Policy Advocacy for C. diff Patients: What’s Required?
We can also tailor presentations to meet your learning objectives. Please contact us to discuss.
Clinical Trial Recruitment
PLF has a large and ever-growing base of CDI sufferers, survivors, and caregivers committed to developing new preventatives and treatments. We work with academics and industry to raise awareness of clinical trials nationwide. National trials are on our Clinical Trials page, with smaller trials searchable through our In Your State database.
If you have a clinical trial underway, please contact us so we can include it.
PLF works on various public policy issues related to CDIs, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and other patient safety concerns. We need healthcare workers to join us in these efforts. To do so, please check out our Take Action page.
