Microbiology B (Pharmacy) CJA214

Hobart

Introduction

This unit will commence with an exploration of the basic concepts of medical microbiology. It will then examine the epidemiology of transmissible diseases that are common in healthcare and community settings. The unit will analyse information on the mechanisms through which pathogenic agents colonise a susceptible host and subsequently, elicit clinical symptoms as well as an immune response. This knowledge will provide a basis for critical evaluation of current tools that are available for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of key infections. In particular, you will examine the challenges posed by the spread of antibiotic resistance and the need for appropriate antimicrobial stewardship. Lectures and tutorials will cover these aspects of the unit. The tutorials will reinforce material presented during the unit and lead to an understanding of the role of pharmacists in the control of infectious diseases.
