Invasive Fungal Infection (IFI) for Clinical Officers
Independently sponsored by Pfizer
CPD accredited course (12 CPD points)
Get ready to embark on an exciting journey into the world of fungal infections, with the Invasive Fungal Infection Educational Program offered by CRK-CRO and independently sponsored by Pfizer! As the leading provider of comprehensive educational resources for healthcare professionals in Kenya, CRK-CRO is proud to offer this in-depth program that explores everything from the epidemiology of invasive fungal infections to the latest breakthroughs in prevention and management.
With the CRK-CRO Invasive Fungal Infection Educational Program, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills you need to become an expert in the field. We’ll start by defining invasive fungal infections, and explore the factors contributing to their spread. We’ll dive deep into the most common fungi that cause INVASIVE FUNGAL INFECTIONs, including Candida, Aspergillus, and Cryptococcus, and examine the different transmission pathways that lead to their spread.
One of the most exciting aspects of this program is our focus on diagnostic techniques for INVASIVE FUNGAL INFECTIONs. We’ll explore a wide range of techniques, from culture-based methods and microscopy to cutting-edge DNA-based techniques like PCR assays. You’ll learn about the different biomarkers and antigens used to detect fungal infections, and how to accurately interpret these results to help diagnose and manage INVASIVE FUNGAL INFECTIONs.
