Resistance surveillance programme, posters accepted for presentation at ECCMID for 12th consecutive year!

Congratulation to our Resistance Surveillance programme team. This is the twelfth consecutive year that the BSAC Resistance Surveillance Project has been successful in submissions to ECCMID, the premier European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Disease – we have presented posters or talks at every ECCMID since 2002.

We are very pleased to say report that the abstract “Streptococci other than S. pneumoniae – 12-Year Resistance Trends in Bacteraemia in the UK and Ireland” has been accepted for poster presentation at ECCMID in Barcelona. It will be in the session Resistance surveillance: Gram-positives and others on Tuesday 13 May 2014 between 8.00 AM and 9:00 AM.
