ABS course

Antibiotics are a cornerstone in the management of bacterial infectious diseases. Their efficacy is limited by the consequences of an increasing development of resistance worldwide, especially in some Gram-negative bacteria, so that it is more important than ever to use the substances available to us adequately and rationally.

"Antibiotic Stewardship" is an anti-infective strategy that takes the above conditions into account, consists of several building blocks and will only be effective if many disciplines work together.

We are interested in informing and training as many medical colleagues as possible about modern strategies of anti-infective therapy. The following events will be conducted and supported by us:
