    • Overview

      Antimicrobial resistance is an ongoing healthcare concern that results in negative patient outcomes. This webinar will review mechanisms of resistance for gram-negative bacteria and how those patterns of resistance affect antibiotic choices. New agents approved for the treatment of serious gram negative infections will be discussed, with focus placed on selection of an appropriate, patient-specific antibiotic in the setting of multi-drug resistant gram negative organisms with low susceptibility profiles.
