With Teresa Zurberg and Dr. Marthe Kenny-Charles

In 2014, Vancouver Coastal Health embraced outside of the box thinking towards the risks posed to our patients, families and staff of the environmental transmission of C. diff and took on a pilot project utilizing the natural scenting abilities of dogs. Currently, there is no feasible technology that can locate environmental reservoirs of C. diff and VCH are using dogs to fill in the void of what technology can’t do. Enter K9 Angus, the super sniffer, whom has been featured extensively in the international media. K9 Angus has been able to expose areas of contamination that were not previously considered, be a conduit to start conversations, make the importance of cleaning and disinfection tangible and help revisit and change processes. This presentation will look at what K9 Angus has brought to light and the impact of the team’s work. K9 Angus is be in attendance!
