The aim of this programme is to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration in order to improve the investigation, diagnosis and management of infection. This will be a clinically-oriented day, with plenty of case presentations to illustrate important practical points. We have secured hand-held voting pads for all attendees, to maximise involvement and learning opportunities.
