More Info


The Year in Infectious Diseases is an annual symposium focused on contemporary challenges in the field of Infectious Diseases. This year's symposium will focus on antimicrobial resistance, infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship. Each session will have several speakers focused on providing the science that supported a successful intervention that will be demonstrated in a case-based real-world experience. Speakers will focus on 3 topic areas: resistance mechanisms of gram positive bacteria, gram negative bacteria and fungi and contemporary management strategies for treating multi-drug resistant bacterial; approaches to hospital-based infection surveillance, emerging epidemologic methods for tracing infections and environmental measures to mitigate against infection transmission; and antimicrobial stewardship metrics and implementation strategies.
