ECCMID 2021 VIRTUAL INTEGRATED SYMPOSIUM
When:

Sunday July 11th, 16:15 -18:15


Moderated by Dr. David Livermore, University of East Anglia, Norwich, England. This symposium will focus on the global threat of antimicrobial resistance and the diagnostic and clinical management challenges during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for patients with bloodstream infections. How clinical microbiologists evaluate the integration of new diagnostic technologies into the laboratory workflow and the effect on antimicrobial stewardship will also be discussed. The session will conclude with a look to the future to explore ways the infectious disease community can balance resources for combatting antimicrobial resistance in the midst of the current viral pandemic.
