Clinical Case Challenge on Diagnostics and AMR
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest threats to global health today. Some medical schools still have gaps in diagnostics and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) content. Diagnostics are laboratory tests to aid clinical management and/or guide treatment decisions and can play an important role in combating AMR.
We propose a challenge to solicit diagnostic and AMR clinical cases through a global call for participation. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage medical students, trainees, physicians, and others to collect or write clinical cases that could be used in medical education and shared online.
Guidelines for submissions are described below. The final deadline for cases is May 1st, 2018. The International Diagnostics Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is the main organizer of this contest.
