Diagnostic Methods for Invasive Fungal Infections is organized by Boston University School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education (BUSM CME) and will be held from Jun 08, 2018 - Jun 07, 2019.
The target audience for this medical event is infectious disease specialists, internal medicine specialists and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with or at risk for invasive fungal infections. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Early identification and targeted treatment of invasive fungal infections have been shown to improve survival. Newer diagnostic methods and strategies provide more rapid results than standard culture and may be beneficial in certain patient populations and in resource-limited settings. This activity reviews the benefits and limitations of available tools for diagnosing four different invasive fungal infections-invasive candidiasis, invasive aspergillosis, mucormycosis, and cryptococcal meningitis.
