ESCMID Postgraduate Education Course

Paediatric infection management for the microbiologist, infection specialist
and antimicrobial pharmacist

This course aims to address some of these issues through a series of case-based interactive workshops. Active participation will be maintained through on-line discussions and real-time voting. Key differences between children and adults will be highlighted and evidence based approaches to managing children will be presented.
Discussions within these workshops will include the role of lumbar puncture in young infants with UTIs, conservative versus surgical management of atypical mycobacterial lymphadenitis in children, the role of pneumococcal urinary antigen testing in children with pneumonia, whether routine echocardiography is required in all children with staph aureus bacteraemia, investigating the baby with late onset sepsis, managing children following a significant exposure to pulmonary TB and many others. This case-based interactive approach has been used annually at the annual UK Federation of Infection Society (FIS) meeting and has received excellent feedback from microbiologists, pharmacists and infectious diseases specialists.
