AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To introduce the basics of microbiology, the characteristics of the main microorganisms of clinical interest and the relationships between microorganisms and the host. Provide a general knowledge of the main microbiological diagnostic investigations including the execution and evaluation of  the antimicrobial susceptibility tests. To acquire the ability to discriminate the main antimicrobial-resistance mechanisms starting from an antibiogram. Know the principles of surveillance of the infections related to healthcare assistance and in particular the clinical / microbiological characteristics of "alert microrganisms" and their impact on clinical activity.
At the end of the course the student will be able to:
- know the basics of microbiology;
- classify the main infectious agents;
- understand how bacteria and viruses cause infectious processes;
- collect a biological sample to be sent to the microbiology laboratory according to the guidelines;
- evaluate an antibiogram;
- to be able to deduce the serious condition of a patient even from the reading of a microbiological report and from the interpretation of the antimicrobial susceptibility tests
- explain the importance of alert microrganisms.
