Guidance on Reporting of Equivocal Results for Clostridium difficile 19 Nov 2010

Following the publication of the 'Recommended protocol for testing for Clostridium difficile and subsequent culture' in December 2009, it is anticipated that there may be an impact on the reported number of episodes of C. difficile infection. To help assess the impact of the new testing guidance and to ensure a consistent approach, HPS have produced this guidance for laboratories when confirming the final dataset during the validation phase of the surveillance programme.
