Uso racional de antibióticos en el tratamiento de heridas

Aprende a tratar las infecciones causadas por heridas como un profesional sanita

Es habitual recurrir a antibióticos para tratar las infecciones causadas por heridas. Por ello, es fundamental comprender el uso racional de antibióticos a la hora de tratar correctamente distintas infecciones provocadas por bacterias, parásitos, virus u hongos y así evitar las resistencias.

En este curso, estudiaremos la resistencia a los antibióticos, aprenderemos cómo abordarla y veremos cómo influye en el tratamiento seguro de los pacientes con heridas. También aprenderemos a reconocer y diagnosticar las infecciones en heridas y a tomar medidas de control de infecciones en nuestra práctica diaria. Aquí puedes escuchar un anticipo.
