The Role of Procalcitonin in Antimicrobial Stewardship: Lessons Learned from the Pandemic

Date: December 6, 2022

Time: 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET / 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PT

Description: 

Sponsored by bioMérieux. Procalcitonin (PCT) is a vital biomarker that became an invaluable indicator of disease severity and bacterial co-infections during the COVID-19 outbreak. Because PCT can guide healthcare professionals to the most appropriate antimicrobial therapies, it is also closely connected to responsible stewardship. In this sponsored webinar, participants will have the opportunity to review some of the most critical lessons learned over the last few years relating to PCT and infection diagnosis, as well as how the use of procalcitonin can help healthcare professionals become better antibiotic stewards while providing the best care for patients.

Healthcare-Associated Infection Mini-Summit

Date: December 15, 2022

Time: 12PM – 3:30PM ET / 9AM – 12:30PM PT

Description: 

The 2022 Healthcare-Associated Infection Mini-Summit will offer a virtual 3.5-hour clinical program on several critical HAI-related topics and will provide attendees with updated clinical knowledge and recommendations for timely infection prevention and treatment. This event is free for registrants and will offer 4.20 CE contact hours for nurses. 

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) present a serious concern for healthcare professionals: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that one in every 31 hospital patients has at least one HAI each day. Healthcare-associated infections, like any infection, can cause sepsis. Healthcare-associated infection prevention measures are, therefore, also sepsis prevention measures.

Sponsored Webinar: Severity Stratification of Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients Using SeptiCyte RAPID

Date: 1/12/23

Time: 2:00 - 2:30 pm ET / 11:00 - 11:30 am PT

Description

Sponsored by Immunexpress. This webinar is a rebroadcast of the session originally presented at Sepsis Alliance Summit 2022. In this sponsored session, learners will review the importance of and challenges associated with triaging COVID-19 patients in the ED, including determining which patients might require ICU care as a consequence of severe or critical SARS-CoV-2 infection, and which are most at risk of developing viral sepsis. The presenter will describe and present relevant data on a new FDA-cleared host response test, SeptiCyte RAPID, which can differentiate infectious systemic inflammation (sepsis) from non-infectious systemic inflammation.
