Surveillance Powered by Diagnostics
Join CIDRAP-ASP for a webinar discussing the importance of surveillance for qualifying and quantifying antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and learn about the challenges of conducting surveillance in low and middle-income settings.
We will also discuss how improving utilization of current diagnostic and surveillance methods can inform local, regional, and global policy, and how new technologies will enable improved adoption and tracking.
Our expert presenters are:
- Elvira Garza González, PhD, Faculty of Medicine, Autonomous University of Nuevo León
- Carlos Arturo Álvarez Moreno, MD, PhD, Infectious Diseases Specialist, National University of Colombia
Time for Q&A will follow the presentation. Continuing education credit for physicians and pharmacists (ACCME and ACPE) provided.
Date and Time
May 4, 6:00 – 7:15pm CDT
This program has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians and pharmacists.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the current diagnostic and surveillance tools available in resource-limited settings
- Use surveillance data to connect with policy actions
- Explain the importance of improving laboratory capacity and diagnostic testing for the collection and reporting of AMR surveillance data
