2022 Antimicrobial Stewardship Summit
About the Summit
With workload increases and staffing limitations due to COVID-19, the focus has been shifted away from antimicrobial stewardship in many facilities across diverse healthcare settings. Unfortunately, inappropriate antibiotic prescribing is common and can result in sub-optimal patient outcomes, development of antimicrobial resistance, and serious adverse reactions such as Clostridioides difficile infection. This summit is designed to highlight the importance of antimicrobial stewardship and focus on implementation strategies to promote facility-wide incorporation and improved antimicrobial use and patient outcomes.
At the conclusion of this summit, the participant should be able to:
Discuss antimicrobial stewardship principles and implementation strategies in the post-COVID era.
Identify the roles and responsibilities of the multidisciplinary team involved in antibiotic stewardship within multiple health care settings to improve the management of common infections.
Describe how to utilize antibiotic stewardship tools to promote the appropriate use of antibiotics and improve patient outcomes.
This summit is intended for:
Post-acute and long-term facilities: Long-term care providers, medical directors, infection preventionists, nurses, consultant pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, directors of nursing, quality program leaders, and all other health care workers interested in improving the management of common infections through the incorporation of antimicrobial stewardship principles.
Outpatient facilities and acute care hospitals: family medicine providers, internal medicine providers, ambulatory care providers, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurses, medical directors, quality program leaders, and all other health care workers interested in improving the management of common infections through the incorporation of antimicrobial stewardship principles.
Parking is available at the Embassy Suites for registered summit participants. You will need to present your parking pass at the summit registration desk to receive a validation sticker.
