We hope you enjoyed the first week of this course on procalcitonin as a biomarker for antimicrobial stewardship.

This week you have learnt about procalcitonin and other diagnostics. You have learnt about antimicrobial stewardship and how it is relevant to the use of procalcitonin.

Next week you will learn about procalcitonin use in different hospital settings. You will look at two case studies to review the use of procalcitonin both in and out of the ICU.

Take time to consolidate what you’ve learnt this week and leave a comment below about what you enjoyed.
