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. This program offers an opportunity for pharmacists worldwide to to get the latest, practical information on how to treat serious infections to optimize patient outcomes.
This online program provides access to online lectures and slides from Canadian Infectious Disease experts featured in the 2014 - 2016 Infectious Diseases/Critical Care Pharmacotherapy Conferences on "Contemporary Issues in the Management of Infections". The available lectures will provide over twelve hours of leading edge continuing education, combined. A full list of topics can be found here.
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 will also learn about the critical role of antimicrobial stewardship in optimizing the use of antimicrobials.
