Learning & Performance Objectives
11th Annual International Pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship Conference is designed and implemented interprofessionally by physicians, nurses and pharmacists. This Live webinar held over three consecutive half days is designed for healthcare provider working in the areas of pediatrics, allergy, immunology, infectious disease, internal medicine as well as bacteriology researchers, healthcare student, laboratorist, microbiologist, pharmacists, professors and scientists.
This course is dedicated to improving the use of antimicrobials for children in all healthcare settings in addition to helping individuals start and improve their antimicrobial stewardship programs. Antibiotic resistant infections kill 23,000 Americans and infection 2 million Americans annually. Additionally, C. difficile infection, kills up to 29,000 Americans annually. Since antibiotic overuse and misuse leads to these resistant infections and C. difficile infections more work is needed in assuring antibiotics are used appropriately in all healthcare settings. Antimicrobial stewardship programs are needed and now required by the Joint Commission and CMS to improve the use of antimicrobials.
The intended result of this course is to increase knowledge, competence, performance, skill and enhanced patient care. At the conclusion of this activity participants will be able to:
- List the antimicrobial stewardship baseline data that should be collected on a continual basis for comparison and evaluation of an antimicrobial stewardship program.
- Discuss the metrics that can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of ASP interventions in all healthcare settings.
- Identify criteria used to select an effective antimicrobial to minimize antimicrobial resistance and adverse drug reactions in children.
