Tackling antimicrobial resistance via CRP testing in respiratory infections Estimated time for completion: 60 minutes

This learning module is delivered as an on-demand webinar recording, featuring lively discussion from a panel of external experts. The content covers use of C-reactive protein (CRP) point-of-care testing (POCT) for respiratory tract infections (RTIs) in primary care. Several presenters look at the current use of CRP POCT, the role it plays in reducing antimicrobial resistance, current barriers to implementation of POCT, and the value of rapid diagnostics in antimicrobial stewardship.
