This course is our 9th Annual Update on Infectious Diseases. It is intended for infectious diseases practitioners as well as internists and other health care providers (primarily physicians but also nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists and nurses) with an interest in infectious diseases from the New York tri-state area. The program will consist of five state-of-the-art thirty minute lectures by experts in the field plus time for questions and answers from the audience.
The first lecture will be case-based and will focus on the role of the clinical microbiology laboratory in the diagnosis and management of multidrug resistant bacterial infections.
Next will be an update on emerging infectious diseases. The presenter will discuss how to potentially define emerging diseases (e.g. new infection, new diagnosis, new resistance, new location). He will then provide an update on the status of Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue and other virus infections.
The following case-based lecture will review clinical challenges in the diagnosis and management of infections in the pregnant woman.
The next presentation will review the latest data on fungal diagnostic tests and antifungal therapy.
The final lecture will be a state-of-the-art overview of efforts that may ultimately lead to cure of HIV infection.
