Aunque seguimos viviendo tiempos difíciles, la Asociación Española de Micología y la Fundación Micellium continúan esforzándose para ofrecer un cauce de comunicación y formación continuada a todos los especialistas dedicados al diagnóstico y tratamiento de la enfermedad fúngica invasora.
En ese marco formativo vamos a realizar la 👉👉 5ª edición de la Reunión Multidisciplinar sobre Enfermedad Fúngica Invasora (EFI) en versión on-line. Este webinar se celebrará el miércoles 2 de febrero a las 18:00 horas con el título: “30 años de EFI: lo aprendido y lo que nos queda por aprender”.
First Wednesday of each month, 13:00-14:00 UK time (BST)
Serious fungal infections such as invasive aspergillosis can be difficult to diagnose due to often non-specific features (fever, cough, weight loss, rash, raised CRP, increased oxygen requirement) and low awareness of fungal infections. Many regions around the world have limited access to a mycology lab, and turnaround times can be long for traditional tests such as fungal cultures. This can lead to delays in treatment that cost lives.
LIFE Worldwide has produced a series of webinars aimed at laboratory and clinical staff to explain which tests are available, how to select the appropriate test, how to perform it, and how to interpret the results in a clinical context. Of particular interest are the rapid point-of-care (‘bedside’) tests, which can return a result in less than 30 minutes.
Summer 2020 programme:
Aspergillus antigen (Weds 3rd June)
Beta-D-glucan (Weds 1st July)
Cryptococcal antigen (Weds 5th Aug)
Therapeutic drug monitoring of antifungals (Weds 2nd Sep)
