Welcome to week 2

Video from Helen Pardoe welcoming learners to week 2 and explaining content that will be covered this week.

Welcome to the second week of this course on procalcitonin and its use as a diagnostic.

Last week, we discussed diagnostics, in particular procalcitonin, and the benefits they have. We also explored the use of procalcitonin in antimicrobial stewardship.

This week we will explore case studies which highlight the use of procalcitonin inside and outside of the ICU. The importance of understanding sepsis will also be explored throughout the week.

We hope you enjoy this week.
