    Abstract

    DATE: November 11, 2019
    TIME: 11:00am PST

    This webinar will explore how using VIDAS® B•R•A•H•M•S PCT™ (procalcitonin) and BIOFIRE® FILMARRAY® Blood Culture Identification Panel results can optimize antimicrobial stewardship in patients with sepsis.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discuss how to reduce antibiotic exposure with highly predictive low procalcitonin levels and positive highly multiplexed blood culture identification panel results                       
    • Explain the high incidence of unnecessary antibiotics in viral infections  

     

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

     

    LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
