About CLSI

 

CLSI U Educational Webinars

Learn how to optimize practices and processes in your laboratory.

Webinars provide an efficient, cost-effective way to learn more about recently published CLSI documents, important industry topics, and critical government mandates.

Through these webinars, CLSI’s volunteers share their own expertise and insight on the subjects at hand while using Q&A sessions to encourage participant discussion and interaction.

Attendees can earn P.A.C.E.® continuing education (CE) credits without leaving the laboratory. CLSI often partners with organizations such as the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) and The Joint Commission to provide additional perspectives on shared issues. This collaboration further enables the development of optimal practices and processes in the laboratory.

Each January, CLSI updates standards for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST). It is important for microbiology laboratories to incorporate the new recommendations into routine practice to optimize detection and reporting of antimicrobial resistance. In January 2017, the annual update of the M100 tables (CLSI document M100 | Performance Standards for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing, 27th Edition) will publish. Some highlights for 2017 include additional suggestions for testing colistin/polymyxin B and poorly growing Staphylococcus aureus. To complement the webinar, an optional post-program self-assessment will be provided that will allow individuals to assess their knowledge regarding the most important AST and reporting issues for 2017. Laboratories can use this feature to augment competency assessment requirements for their staff.

Objectives:

  • Identify the major changes found in the new CLSI M100-S26
  • Design a strategy for implementing the new recommendations into laboratory practices
  • Develop a communication strategy for informing clinical staff of significant AST and reporting changes
