Pediatric Grand Rounds (CME):Actionable Next Generation Sequencing for Surveillance and Prevention of Healthcare-Associated Infections

Chaz Langelier, MD, PhD and David Dynerman, PhD - UCSF / Chan Zuckerberg Biohub

Using clinical case examples, we will discuss the epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections, core principles of next generation sequencing (NGS) and key concepts of phylogenetic analysis for infectious disease epidemiology. 

Speakers

Session Description

Using clinical case examples, we will discuss the epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections, core principles of next generation sequencing (NGS) and key concepts of phylogenetic analysis for infectious disease epidemiology. We will review the clinical features and molecular attributes of Candida auris, Carbapenem Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and transfusion-related sepsis. Through discussion of cases from the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Rapid Response Program, we will identify use cases for NGS in infectious disease epidemiology and infection prevention.

Education Goals

  • Understand basic principles of next generation sequencing (NGS)
  • Understand basic concepts of phylogenetic analysis for infectious disease epidemiology
  • Review Candida auris, transfusion-related sepsis and Carbapenem Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)
  • Identify applications for NGS in infectious disease epidemiology and infection control

CME Credit

Accreditation

The Stanford University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation

The Stanford University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Cultural and Linguistic Competency

California Assembly Bill 1195 requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency.  The planners and speakers of this CME activity have been encouraged to address cultural issues relevant to their topic area. The Stanford University School of Medicine Multicultural Health Portal also contains many useful cultural and linguistic competency tools including culture guides, language access information and pertinent state and federal laws.
