This conference series is designed to present an intensive full day review of a specific topic. Our goal is to provide the most up-to-date information on diagnosis and therapy. The emphasis is providing practical information you can use every day. This year’s seminar focuses on Infectious Diseases. There are hundreds of infectious agents including bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa. The diagnosis of an infectious disease is based on the presenting signs and clues in the history (risk factors, exposure), physical examination, routine blood work and imaging that raise our suspicion for that disease. The diagnosis is confirmed with specific testing that identifies the organism or detects an antibody response. Today’s seminar will emphasize the clinical manifestations, interpretation of diagnostic testing and therapy of covered infectious diseases.
