Management of Diagnostic Microbiology Laboratory has become crucial as dramatic changes in infectious diseases practice are witnessed. Microbiology laboratories are the first lines of defense for detection of new antibiotic resistance, outbreaks of foodborne infection, and a possible bioterrorism event. Maintaining high-quality clinical microbiology laboratories on the site of the institution that they serve is the current best approach for managing today’s problems of emerging infectious diseases and antimicrobial agent resistance by providing good patient care outcomes that actually save money. Continuing in such a direction threatens quality of laboratory results, timeliness of diagnosis, appropriateness of treatment, effective communication, reduction of health care-associated infections, advances in infectious diseases practice, and training of future practitioners. This session discusses more about management of diagnostic microbiology laboratory.
