Inaugural Infectious Disease Working Party

By May 13, 2022No Comments

Our AMR Working Party and Covid Task Force groups have been combined to cover these themes and for this first meeting we were pleased to have a session with The CF AMR Syndicate on the development of Patient-focused Target Product Profiles (TPP) for Lung Microbiological Diagnostic Tests in Cystic Fibrosis.

We were delighted to see so many attendees but in order to make sure that agendas remain relevant and interesting, please contact ME with topics and suggestions for meeting content.

The work previously introduced on the Blood Culture pathway with NHS England will be incorporated into this group and further updates from that project will be provided as they arise.

This is the also the Working group where the CTDA process and updates relating to the Government’s living with Covid agenda will be provided when relevant.

Terms of Reference were discussed, and these will be developed shortly to provide to member companies.

I would like to invite member volunteers to take the role of Chair, with 2 x Vice Chairs, please let me know if you want to take on either of these roles.

We recognise that this could be a broad area and we welcome feedback from members as to the best way to deliver these meetings.

They are presently held for 1 hour and are virtual, these could be extended to cover multiple topics with the opportunity to meet in person and virtually, or remain as an hour and cover specific subjects more frequently. Please indicate your suggestions to me and we will assess the best route to make sure you get the best out of this meeting.
