This course meets the Florida 1-hour specialty requirements in clinical chemistry and molecular pathology. For those certified by ASCP, it provides 11 contact hours in clinical chemistry and 1 hour in molecular pathology.
For this course, we have selected 12 chapters from Urinary Tract Infections: Molecular Pathogenesis and Clinical Management, Second Edition. The course contains information very specific to the urinary tract and the bacteria which cause infections in this bodily area, ranging from asymptomatic to uroseptic in nature.
The chapters should appeal to professionals interested in urinalysis and microbiology. It is not a general urinalysis “catch all,” but rather a more detailed and focused look targeting one specific sector of the urogenital system and can be applied to the daily work of laboratorians to advance their knowledge so they may better interact with clinical personnel in matters related to the urogenital system and the microbes present.
There is always a need for professional material to help with the understanding of various disease processes. In this case, the microbes affecting the urinary system have become more resistant to treatment and the information presented in this book can help professionals further understand the complexities involves and possible alternative treatment options.
