This webinar will explore how using a procalcitonin (PCT) driven protocol in the Emergency Room can aid clinicians in deciding about hospital admission versus treatment in the home setting. We will look at the existing data using procalcitonin in patients with presumed Lower Respiratory Tract Infections(LRTI) and how antibiotic stewardship teams could use this biomarker in shaping their clinical decisions. Lastly, we will examine what stewardship metrics may be impacted by using a procalcitonin guided protocol.
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
