With the rising incidence of MSRP worldwide, we not only need ways we can treat resistant infections but also need ways we can reduce our use of systemic antibiotics. Antimicrobial stewardship is up to all of us, and there are new novel approaches to infections that can avoid and/or minimize the use of antimicrobials in your practice. We will discuss MRSP and topical therapy as well as touch on the importance of preventing these infections from recurring. We will also introduce our newest weapon to help against superficial infections: PHOVIA®!
Time: starts at 6:30pm and ends at 9:00pm (registration at 6:00pm). Light Dinner to be served.
