2017 Updates and Recommendations from the CLSI for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing and Reporting

Each year, the CLSI updates the M100S document with recommendations for agents to test/report, interpretive criteria, and QC ranges. It is important for clinical microbiologists to implement the new recommendations into their procedures, as appropriate, to optimize detection and reporting of antimicrobial resistance. This session will highlight some of the newest CLSI recommendations by using specific cases and examples. Focus on laboratory testing methods and strategies to implement these changes will be made.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
  1. List the new recommendations for antimicrobial susceptibility testing and reporting published in the CLSI M100S 27th edition.
  2. Discuss strategies to approaching testing of difficult organisms, such as atypical S. aureus, and difficult antimicrobials, such as colistin.
