ESCMID Panorama

Presentations & Publications


EUCIC, ESGAP and EUCAST launched a European survey to explore in which countries selective reporting of antibiotic susceptibility testing results has already been implemented at a large scale (regional, national) and how it has been organized. The survey “Selective reporting of antibiotic susceptibility test results in European countries: an ESCMID cross-sectional survey” has now been published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents.
