Contemporary Issues in the Management of Infections

October 13, 2018

The reality is that critically ill patients often present with infectious diseases that can seriously complicate treatment. An aging population, complex life-sustaining technology, the wide-spread use of immunomodulatory therapies and a limited pipeline of antimicrobials are all factors contributing to these issues.

Here’s an opportunity to get the latest, practical information on how to treat serious infections to optimize patient outcomes. Don’t miss out on this year’s Infectious Diseases/Critical Care Pharmacotherapy Conference on Contemporary Issues in the Management of Infections.

Now in its 14th year, this annual one-day conference brings you cutting-edge data from the latest literature that you can immediately apply in practice. Presented by leading experts from across the country, the program is designed to equip you with key knowledge around contemporary management strategies and the main challenges of infection, looking at controversial issues and best practices. You’ll also learn about the critical role of antimicrobial stewardship in optimizing the use of antimicrobials. Find out what 2017’s conference topics were by clicking here.
