Microscopy is a mainstay in laboratory diagnosis. However it requires a high level of expertise to ensure reliability. The new powerful tools of biochemistry, immunology and molecular biology complement microscopic diagnosis. This 5-day intensive course on diagnostic parasitology aims to review, update and strengthen the knowledge and skills of health professionals involved in teaching, research and diagnostic work dealing with parasitic diseases. COURSE OBJECTIVES Identify the important morphologic features used in the identification of parasites and medically important arthropods; Perform various laboratory procedures used in the diagnosis of parasitic infections for clinical and research applications; Demonstrate specific methods and procedures for collection, preservation and processing of parasitic specimens; and Understand the latest concepts regarding the epidemiology, diagnosis and quality assurance, treatment and control of parasitic infections. COURSE DESCRIPTION Intensive laboratory-based course Lectures/discussions, video and film. Core activities are: Individual work with parasite specimens Hands-on diagnosis of common protozoan and helminthic infections.
