IDSA, in partnership with the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Medscape, is offering a free CME activity, “Antimicrobial Resistance Across the Continuum of Care: Winning the War One Battle at a Time.” The activity includes a roundtable discussion with antimicrobial resistance and stewardship experts and is intended for clinicians who regularly prescribe antibiotics.
Improving antibiotic use in this country is imperative. The goal of this activity is to raise awareness of the potential public health crisis created by inappropriate antibiotic prescribing and antibiotic resistance in the United States in an effort to motivate clinicians to change the prescribing practices that created the problem. At the completion of the 45-minute program, clinicians should be able to:
- identify the most important contributing factors for development of antimicrobial resistance
- recognize patient and provider pressures for prescribing antibiotics
- identify ways to optimize antimicrobial therapy through stewardship initiatives
