The programme is currently under development and will include speaker presentations, discussion sessions and a networking opportunity in order to:
- Allow the sharing of experience and knowledge
- Act as a forum for bringing together DIPCs who are both microbiologists and non-microbiologists
- Facilitate future research and collaboration
- Narrow the knowledge gap for those with differing clinical backgrounds
Accreditation will be sought from the Royal College of Pathologists. The last event was approved for 5 CPD credits.
