ASM-CLSI Webinar Series

CLSI, in partnership with the American Society of Microbiology, offers the following webinar series:

An ASM-CLSI Webinar Series on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing: Advanced Susceptibility Testing and Emerging Technologies
This P.A.C.E. ®-accredited four-part webinar series on antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) in the clinical microbiology laboratory focuses on cases regarding situations in which specialized susceptibility testing for organisms other than common, rapidly-growing aerobic bacteria should be performed. Topics include AST for fastidious bacteria, anaerobic bacteria, yeasts, filamentous fungi, and nontuberculosis mycobacteria. This course will provide a foundation on antifungal and anti-mycobacterial drug classes, their modes of action, spectrum of activity, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD), and common mechanisms of resistance. Part three of a three-part series.

An ASM-CLSI Webinar Series on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing: Fundamentals of Susceptibility Testing, Reporting, and Test Validation
2017 Series, Currently Available On Demand
The purpose of this P.A.C.E. ®-accredited five-part webinar series is to provide the fundamentals of AST in the clinical microbiology laboratory, delivering foundational information on antibiotic classes, their modes of action, spectrum of activity, and breakpoint determination and interpretations, and more. Additional sessions discuss the methods used and theory behind manual and automated susceptibility testing. This short webinar series provides an introductory curriculum for laboratory technologists to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to perform and interpret antimicrobial susceptibility and effectively report results. Part one of a three-part series.

An ASM-CLSI Webinar Series on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing: Mechanisms of Resistance, Antimicrobial Stewardship, and Infection Prevention
2017 Series, Currently Available On Demand
The purpose of this P.A.C.E. ®-accredited five-part webinar series is to provide thorough coverage of key issues encountered when performing antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) within the clinical laboratory, including the detection of common and novel resistance mechanisms and the utility of antibiograms and antimicrobial stewardship in infection prevention. Part two of a three-part series.
