This SHPA Infectious Diseases Masterclass provides pharmacists with the advanced skills required to optimise the use of antimicrobials and manage complex patients with infectious diseases. It is designed for clinical pharmacists with a good working knowledge of infectious diseases wishing to expand their skills into more complex and specialised areas. The seminar will enable pharmacists to:

  • Identify and discuss a range of research projects & case presentations in the field of infectious diseases & antimicrobial therapy
  • Describe pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of antimicrobials and the clinical application of PK/PD parameters to optimise the efficacy of antimicrobial agents
  • Describe which antimicrobials require therapeutic drug monitoring and interpret antimicrobial serum concentrations with respect to infectious disease states
  • Evaluate complex infections caused by gram-negative, fungal and mycobacterial pathogens seen in hospital patients and discuss the rationale behind antimicrobial therapy associated with these infections via case studies.

The self-paced learning package contains approximately 3 hours of learning content will be available from Friday 16 July 2021.  The live virtual component of this seminar will take place on Saturday 28 August 2021.  The self-paced learning package materials must be completed prior to attending the live virtual seminar.
