TORONTO, October 1, 2018 – Gram-negative bacteremia is an increasingly difficult condition to treat due to the emergence of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative organisms. Rapid diagnostics have been developed to help identify these organisms quickly along with other Gram-negative infections, enabling more timely treatment decisions.

In this live webinar, featured speakers Dr. Maggie Box, Infectious Diseases Clinical Pharmacy Specialist at Scripps Memorial Hospital, and Dr. Kimberly Claeys, Assistant Professor at the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, will explore a molecular option for this testing, how the rapid detection of Gram-negative organisms along with genotypic resistance can help guide therapy decisions and strategies to promote successful implementation within institutions.

Join these industry experts on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018, at 2 p.m. EDT for an interactive and informative presentation.
