Antibiotic susceptibility patterns used for epidemiologic surveillance of S. aureus

Organised by the ISAC MRSA Working Group

There have been recent studies in the US and Spain showing emerging resistance in MSSA to macrolides and to tetracyclines. ST398 S. aureus strains, initially identified as “livestock associated MRSA” are a fascinating example. Studies of clinical S. aureus strains have in some cases included molecular epidemiology suggesting that ST398 S. aureus strains may be responsible for a change in the relative prevalence of strains causing clinically significant disease. Other studies have examined national or transnational emergence of various increasingly common strains of MRSA and MSSA, using susceptibility patterns to track strain emergence or change over time. Join this webinar and hear from 3 experts in the field on these topics.

 

Optimising paediatric antibiotic therapy: a model-informed precision dosing approach

Optimising paediatric antibiotic therapy: a model-informed precision dosing approach

Organised by the ISAC Early Career Working Group

On-demand recording coming soon.

Join us for an insightful webinar titled "Optimising Paediatric Antibiotic Therapy: A Model-Informed Precision Dosing Approach." This session will delve into the cutting-edge methodologies of model-informed precision dosing (MIPD) to enhance antibiotic treatment in children. Discover how integrating pharmacometric models and clinical data can optimise dosing regimens, improve therapeutic outcomes, and minimise adverse effects. Ideal for healthcare professionals, researchers, and clinicians, this webinar will provide valuable knowledge and practical strategies to revolutionise paediatric antibiotic therapy. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the leading expert in the field and advance your practice.
