Skip to 0 minutes and 7 secondsWelcome to week 2 of the course. This week, you will learn some basic laboratory techniques for bacterial identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing and discuss the more advanced techniques available. You will also learn about the importance of obtaining accurate results from these techniques. Incorrect results can have major consequences on both clinical outcome if the wrong antibiotic is given and on surveillance data, which is used to detect resistance. We hope you enjoy this week, and we look forward to reading your comments and questions.

Welcome to Week 2

We welcome you into the second week of the course

In this video, Beth describes the contents of the week to follow, which is focused on the laboratory techniques used to detect types of bacteria and resistance to antibiotics.

We hope you are looking forward to learning this week.
