The many facets of infectious disease management have never been more in the spotlight than in the last 2 years. The public as well as health professionals have learned a huge amount. But beyond the advances in the clinical care of COVID itself, what broader areas of medicine have blossomed?

In this symposium we will focus on the broad subject of prevention of diseases caused by infectious pathogens, considering our experience of, but looking beyond SARS CoV 2.

The program will be led by local and internationally renowned experts covering the following themes

  • A practical look at the “other pandemic” of antimicrobial resistance with examples of real world antibiotic prescribing pitfalls, focusing on individual patient care as well as stewardship.
  • Vaccination science, what do practitioners need to know and how can we apply this knowledge to our daily practice
  • Ventilation as a prevention for airborne infection-is this practical?
  • Public and individual health approaches including global and local, adult and paediatric care.

This symposium is aimed at a broad range of healthcare fields including adult and paediatric infectious diseases, microbiology and virology specialists as well as those from primary care, secondary care, public health and trainees.
