The VALUE-Dx project encouraged all relevant stakeholders to attend the Ecraid educational webinar “Clinical case discussion: How clinical trials inform antibiotic stewardship”, organized by VALUE-Dx partners ERS and ESCMID. The webinar took place on 19 January, 2022 from 13:00–14:30 CET.
The aim of this webinar was to provide an overview of data from clinical trials in the management of complicated urinary tract infections and pneumonia, and how this information may be incorporated into stewardship activities.
Following the webinar, participants were able to discern the relevance of microbiological tests and their interpretation for the aetiological diagnosis of pneumonia, and the evidence-based principles for antibiotic treatment of complicated UTIs and community-acquired pneumonia.
The European Clinical Research Alliance for Infectious Diseases – Ecraid – advances clinical research in the field of infectious diseases by establishing a long-term, financially self-sustainable, clinical research network in Europe. This network encompasses more than 2,000 sites in 40+ European countries. It includes primary care settings (general practitioners), hospital settings (emergency rooms and intensive care units), paediatric care settings, clinical laboratories, and long-term care facilities. The VALUE-Dx project and clinical studies are at the heart of the Ecraid network.
