Following last year’s successful online event, GAIN 2021 is once again brought to you as an online multi-session event, where you have the option to join one, two or all three of the sessions. This year’s programme is designed to advance the management of invasive fungal disease by sharing knowledge and best practice on diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of patient types.

Through a series of virtual sessions (each session length is between 2h20–2h40) we will explore diagnostic challenges and share a breadth of real-world patient case studies considering treatment decisions, insights and lessons learned from clinical practice. We will discuss the everyday to the more complex challenges involved in fighting invasive fungal disease (IFD), with plenaries, debate, and workshops. CPD points are awarded in accordance with the number of sessions attended.

Session 1: Diagnostic challenges and the impact of the mycobiome takes us to the lab and investigates which diagnostic tests we should use and when, how we access novel tests and consider what the results really mean? We will also be thinking outside the box and debating the impact of the mycobiome on the risk of developing IFD.

Session 2: Challenges in treating IFD delves into a selection of adult clinical case studies and explores the various challenges in treating IFD in these different patient types from those with COVID-19 to HIV. This session includes a choice of an interactive workshop alongside the plenary sessions.

Session 3: Diagnosis and treatment of IFD in paediatric patients examines clinical case studies from paediatric patient groups. We explore the diagnosis and treatment of IFD in paediatric patients where clear evidence-based guidance is sometimes lacking. We also take a look at the latest clinical and laboratory papers in this field.

GAIN 2021 is open to healthcare professionals that are associated with an institution based in the UK and Ireland only.
