Managing Infections Caused by Extended-Spectrum-β-Lactamase Producing Enterobacterales and Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacterales: Home-Study
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Recognize the common mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance in Enterobacterales
- Recognize susceptibility reports for β-lactamase- producing Enterobacterales and select appropriate antimicrobial therapy
- Define carbapenem-sparing options for the treatment of extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) Enterobacterales
- State the role of ceftazidime-avibactam, meropenem-vaborbactam, and other novel agents for the treatment of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE)
