BROADENING HORIZONS: EXPANDING TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR THE PAEDIATRIC PATIENT - Supported by Pfizer
Managing infectious diseases in children involves many of the therapeutic principles used to treat adults. However, the paediatric patient population faces unique challenges including a different risk factor profile compared with adults, limited treatment options and distinct pharmacokinetic parameters. These challenges not only drive the need to reimagine the future of patient care, but also provide opportunities for innovation and breakthrough treatments.
Join our global panel as they introduce recent therapeutic advances in the management of bacterial infections for the paediatric patient. They will discuss how these therapies may address the current and anticipated burden of unmet need and consider their potential to improve patient outcomes. This session will include a live panel discussion in which our esteemed faculty will share their knowledge, insights and experience in managing this vulnerable population.
