Converse & Convene: MICs/CLSIs

Grab your favorite beverage, turn on your camera, and join the conversation! Converse & Convene is a virtual networking forum moderated by SHEA member experts who will lead and facilitate discussion and collaboration. Participants will be able to share challenges, lessons learned, and gain greater insight not only with their breakout groups but with a larger group discussion directly following and lead by the moderators. Please note this event is not recorded and is intended for participants to have a candid discussion around the selected topic. This event is open to SHEA members only.


We will start with a group discussion, and then move into breakout rooms. The conversation will get started with these questions, but please feel free to bring your own questions, ideas, and stories. 

  1. What are some barriers that you are facing in starting or working through breakpoint updates based on the CAP recommendations that will become effective January 1, 2024?
  2. How are you prioritizing which drugs to spend time updating, knowing that some will need verification (FDA on-label use) and some will need validation (FDA off-label use)?
  3. What educational resources are you using to aid personnel in understanding and learning about breakpoints, the importance of using updated breakpoints, and how to efficiently update them on a yearly basis?
  4. For labs and facilities that do not use the CAP checklist as the lab accrediting body, what plans do you have for verifying and/or validating breakpoints with the FDA's acknowledgement of CLSI's 33rd Edition of the M100 for breakpoints?
