MIC Surveillance, Resistance Mechanisms and Public Health

Presented by

Rafael Canton, Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal-IRYCIS

About this talk

Explore how systematic collection, analysis, interpretation and timely dissemination of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) data impacts the planning, implementation and evaluation of public health practice. Understand what impact high-level or low-level resistance mechanisms have on the interpretation of isolates distribution, which may help clinicians go beyond relying solely upon the breakpoints available today. In this webinar, recorded at the 29th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases, hear Professor Rafael Canton review why antimicrobial resistance, beyond the human side of medicine, is yet another public health approach clinicians need to address. After viewing this webinar, you will be able to: - Learn the importance of surveillance of antimicrobial resistance, and the international programs for antimicrobial resistance surveillance - Understand the importance of MIC interpretation in public health surveillance, with examples for fluoroquinolones and cephalosporins - Know how MICs can assist the user in simplification of complex resistance mechanisms, and the relevance of MICs when using molecular methods for surveillance P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation.* Ideal for: Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee Member, Laboratory Director, Microbiologist Presenter: Rafael Canton, Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal-IRYCIS *Beckman Coulter Inc. is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E.® Program.
