    Abstract

    DATE: June 26, 2019

    TIME: 11:00am EDT

    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.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the role of procalcitonin (PCT) for acute presentation in the emergency department of lower respiratory tract infection and sepsis.
    • Understand appropriate use of procalcitonin (PCT) and how to interpret pct levels in the emergency department

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
