ESCMID Postgraduate Education Course: Improving the Diagnosis of Bloodstream Infections – Advancing Technology and Quality for Better Care 

The aim is to improve the participant’s knowledge of diagnosis/treatment, and to improve practices in order to be better prepared for the future. Course topics will range from current best practices for diagnosis to advanced technologies for improving management in a context of multi-drug resistant pathogens becoming more and more widespread or in light of new concepts and new approaches (e.g. bio lm or anti-infective lock therapy in catheter- associated BSI). The course will focus on strategies to shorten time-to-result and to improve BSI detection (e.g. novel molecular tools), BSI diagnosis and management-based advanced technologies and how these advanced methodologies will be implemented in the next 5 years. The course will also cover a cost effectiveness approach of novel tool implementation. The lectures will be delivered by a range of European experts, and several lectures will include a joint perspective of microbiologists/ infectious disease specialists designed to improve patient management.
