Implementing Syndromic Multiplex PCR for Pneumonia within an Antimicrobial Stewardship Program, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:10/8/2019

Join Director of Clinical Microbiology Laboratory at Loyola University Medical Center, Amanda T. Harrington, PhD, D(ABMM), and Infectious Disease Physician at Loyola University Medical Center, Fritzie Albarillo, MD, in a live webinar on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 1pm EDT. The speakers will discuss the benefits and challenges with implementing a syndromic multiplex PCR panel for pneumonia.

New technology is changing how pathogens are identified in lower respiratory tract specimens. Multiplex PCR panels now on the market can identify pathogens in hours with significantly increased sensitivity compared to routine culture methods. The increased sensitivity of these products is a benefit for antimicrobial stewardship efforts because of the increased confidence of a negative result for bacterial pathogens. If clinicians are able to get rapid and reliable negative results, they can remove unnecessary empiric antibiotics and improve antibiotic stewardship efforts at their institutions.

Several studies have looked at the potential changes to empiric antimicrobials based on a BioFire Pneumonia Panel results. These studies show that the BioFire Pneumonia Panel would have led to de-escalation of empiric antimicrobial therapy in about 50 percent of patients. It is important that these tools are implemented within the context of antimicrobial stewardship so that these de-escalation gains are realized in routine patient management.

The speakers will also review how antimicrobial stewardship program leaders can engage with the appropriate clinical stakeholders within their institution to discuss implementation of a multiplex PCR panel.
