New eTool helps save infants from meningitis
Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) has launched a new teaching package, including an eTool, for clinicians wanting to improve their ability to recognise, investigate and manage young infants who present with possible bacterial meningitis.
The eTool was launched at MRF's 2017 conference in London. Vinny Smith, Chief Executive of MRF, says: "With babies being one of the most at risk groups for bacterial meningitis, we are dedicated to helping improve diagnosis and treatment in this vulnerable age group. Research is highlighting why it is so difficult for parents and health professionals alike to recognise the non-specific symptoms in young infants and, more importantly, what can be done about it."
