The most complete review of advances in Community and Hospital Infections in Pediatrics"

This program offers the student the possibility of deepening and updating knowledge, using the latest educational technology. It offers a global vision of Community and Hospital Infections in Pediatrics, while focusing on the most important and innovative aspects.

This program arises as a response to an important need in the field of Infectious Diseases. Today, this need responds, among other things, to the emergence of certain diseases that are unknown or have little practice (zika, chikungunya, hemorrhagic fevers, among others), and with others that have fallen into oblivion or are unknown to less experienced pharmacists such as diphtheria, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), or flaccid paralysis associated with poliovirus vaccines.

At the therapeutic level, the emergence of resistance (BLEES, MRSA, carbapenem-resistant enterobacteria, etc.), often caused by the unwise and rational use of drugs, creates problems for the clinician perform it comes to initial empirical treatment in certain situations.

On the other hand, parents who refuse vaccines, children from low-income backgrounds, infections in transplant recipients, children with devices, fevers without focus in well-vaccinated children are increasingly common situations that the pharmacist has to deal with.

All this means that, in order to provide the best possible care, the pharmacist must continuously update themselves, even if they are not a specialist, since the percentage of visits or inter-consultations related to infection is very high. If we add to this the increasing amount of information provided by parents, sometimes not always contrasted, professional updating becomes essential to be able to provide adequate information according to the current scientific evidence at all times.

With this program you will have the opportunity to study a teaching program that brings together the most advanced and in-depth knowledge in the field, where a group of professors of high scientific prestige and extensive international experience provides you with the most complete and up-to-date information on the latest advances and techniques on Community and Hospital Infections in Pediatrics.
