31st Annual North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference

W15 - W15: INF/MIC: Epidemiology & Management of Infection

Nov 3, 2017 2:00pm ‐ Nov 3, 2017 3:20pm


Description

In these sessions, the epidemiology and clinical associations of important pathogens in cystic fibrosis will be presented. Speakers will present evidence on pathogen evolution over time, novel scoring systems for defining chronicity, and the impact of emerging therapies on the effectiveness of existing antimicrobials.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the epidemiology, clonal spread, and resulting clinical associations of common CF pathogens.
  2. Propose a novel scoring system for chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in cystic fibrosis.
  3. Discuss the impact of novel small molecule therapies on antimicrobial effectiveness for traditional cystic fibrosis pathogens.
