Respiratory medicine meets other disciplines, 07.09.2021
A joint ERS/ESCMID session. Results from the current European Clinical Research Initiative on Antimicrobial resistance and emerging Infectious Diseases (ECRAID) - Value-Dx project
Chairs: G. Sotgiu (Porto Torres (SS), Italy), M. Barrecheguren Fernandez (Barcelona, Spain)
Aims: To present the first data emerging from the European project of Value Dx aimed at investigating the use of old and new diagnostic tests to optimise the use of antimicrobials and the management of respiratory infections across different settings (from primary care to intensive care units); to provide an overview and update of the role of diagnostics in the management of respiratory infections by reducing the overuse of antimicrobials and optimising clinical outcomes, utilisation of healthcare resources and economics. The Value Dx project is part of the European clinical research initiative on antimicrobial resistance and emerging infectious diseases.
