ESCMID Panorama
Surveillance and early warning systems of healthcare-associated infections

This module on surveillance aims at providing course participants a more in-depth understanding of sur-veillance methods for specific healthcare-associated infections (HAI) types and patient risk groups, as well as for antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and anti-microbial consumption, addressing European ECDCsurveillance methods where appropriate. Point prevalence surveys of HAIs and IPC structure and process indicators at the hospital level will be addressed as well as different approaches to organise surveillance at hospital and national level and to report hospital-based structure, process and outcome indicators. Finally, participants will also obtain a better understanding of different options to organise a rapid alert system for the detection of new threats and outbreaks related to HAIs and AMR at hospital and national level.Each session includes lecture(s) and interactive exercises (e.g. case presentations).
