|OVERALL OBJECTIVES: Following this course, the participant should be able to appraise the epidemiology and classify commonly presenting infectious diseases; differentiate among the various serious infections requiring immediate therapy; apply appropriate use of laboratory studies and determine when to refer to a specialist. This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making an appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes. |
