This teleconference will focus on navigating through the newest CLSI antimicrobial susceptibility testing documents M02, M07, and M100. Strategies for optimally using these documents and incorporating recommendations into routine laboratory protocols will be discussed.
At the conclusion of this program, the participants will be able to:
· Describe information contained in M02 and M07 and identify how these documents differ from the M100 tables.
· List ways to identify new information contained in M02, M07, and M100.
· Discuss how M02, M07, and M100 can aid development of a quality program for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and reporting in clinical and public health laboratories
