ECDC study protocol for genomic-based surveillance of carbapenem-resistant and/or colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae at the EU level
This ECDC study protocol describes the technical requirements for implementing future EU-level genomic-based surveillance of carbapenem-resistant and/or colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. It is meant to guide the consolidation of ECDC activities in relation to molecular typing of multidrug-resistant pathogens, and to focus the development of genomic typing enhanced surveillance. It builds upon and synthesises evidence and the opinion of experts in Member States and at ECDC, compiled since 2014.
