Infections in Hematology

A recent publication in Clinical Infectious Diseases "Global differences in the management of Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia" revealed substantial variation in treatment practices across the world. On behalf of a group of Infectious Diseases Physicians and Clinical Microbiologists from a number of countries and SWG on Infections in Hematology, we would like to examine treatment and diagnosis of carbapenem resistant Gram negative organisms worldwide. This activity is not sponsored by any pharmaceutical or diagnostic company. The survey is completely anonymous.

The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

 The SWG on Infection in Hematology was founded in 2017 and follows four main goals:

  1. Develop and share clinically useful tools: Many hematologists create checklists and pathways for quick and easy reference. Since many of us share similar clinical needs, the SWG provides a repository where such material can be shared.

  2. Facilitate access to guidance documents: Whilst other groups are highly active in developing guidelines, this group focusses on access to such guidelines, providing tables of links to existing guidance documents of national, European, and international organizations.

  3. Reinforce networking opportunities for those who manage infections in adult and pediatric hematology.

  4. Enable access to clinical trial opportunities and connect clinician researchers to trial sponsors.

Here you will find information about the current state of our specialized working group and its growth, the latest updates to the guidelines and endorsements, the upcoming meetings and symposiums, etc.
