Title: The Role of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Nosocomial Infections Among Other Healthcare-Associated Infections: A Nonlinear Spatio-Temporal Collaborative Study

Keywords: Nonlinear model; Nonlinear spatio-temporal modeling; Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); Healthcare-associated infections

This multidisciplinary study reports advanced statistical analysis of large nationwide data on the role of healthcare-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections among other healthcare-associated infections (HAI). We introduce the importance and the information that can be elucidated from complex datasets by using advanced nonlinear spatio-temporal modeling techniques that have not been otherwise exploited and used in the biomedical fields. Our results are achieved by bridging the gap between medical/clinical physicians, theoretical epidemiologists, and statisticians.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
