End of Week 2
Well done on reaching the end of Week 2 on The Role of Antifungal Stewardship!
During this week of the module, we have considered two case studies of serious fungal disease from presentation to treatment and what diagnostic challenges they present.
You should have gained an understanding of:
- Risk factors to infection
- Diagnostic techniques
- Treatment options taking stewardship into account
While fungal infections can present in various ways, the principles of their antifungal management are the same. The focus is on good quality prescribing that follows a thorough assessment and use of diagnostic tests.
In Week 3 we will cover what antifungal stewardship is and assess the need for the practise to be implemented globally.
