November 18-24th is World Antimicrobial Awareness Week. Tackling AMR requires a multi-faceted approach and research has shown how incorporating CRP testing into clinical practice may help to limit antibiotic use to only those patients with severe (bacterial) infections.
Dr Rogier Hopstaken, a GP from the Netherlands, will discuss how Supporting antimicrobial stewardship using point of care CRP testing implementing CRP testing at the point of care has the potential to curb the problem of AMR and help change antibiotic prescribing behaviours in primary care settings. We will also review case studies and explore the benefits of portable CRP* testing with patients in community settings using the LumiraDx Platform technology at the point of care.
