Challenges in Antibiotic Resistance: Gram Negative Bacteria
Identify, diagnose and treat gram negative bacterial infections.
Gram negative bacteria (GNB) are a group of bacteria that can cause infection and toxic reaction in patients, yet are difficult to differentiate and treat with antibiotics due to their structure.
This online course - led by experts from the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) - looks at this challenge. You’ll explore the microbiology of gram-negative bacteria, and find out how to identify, classify, diagnose and treat GNB infections.
You’ll also look at occurrences of GNB and antibiotic resistance worldwide, and understand the impact they have on health and economic outcomes.
This course is designed for healthcare professionals who are responsible for infection management.
No special resources are required for this course.
