ESCMID Postgraduate Education Course

Phenotypic and Molecular approaches for Detection and Control of Carbapenem- and Colistinresistant Gram-negatives

Co-organised by ESGARS, ESGMD and ESCMID

Volos, Greece, 23 – 24 May 2019

Gram-negative pathogens currently represent a very significant public health issue in most countries worldwide. Particularly challenging are the diagnostic and treatment aspects of carbapenem- and/or colistin-resistant infections. In that respect, the prompt diagnosis of infections due to such pathogens and the accurate detection of their antibiotic resistance status are very important for the clinical microbiological laboratories. This Postgraduate Educational Course will comprise state-of-the-art lectures dealing with phenotypic and molecular diagnostic approaches of multi-resistant nosocomial bugs, emphasizing on carbapenemand colistin-resistant Gram-negatives, such as Acinetobacter baumannii, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
