Activity Overview

This webinar is being offered in recognition of 2022 World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (Nov. 18-24).  Antimicrobial stewardship programs play a critical role in supporting appropriate antibiotic prescribing practices.  In this webinar, CDC experts discuss how you can implement an antimicrobial stewardship program to address the CDC Core Elements. Participants will learn about the CDC’s approaches for the core elements of antibiotic stewardship programs as well as utilization of recent evidence for appropriate use of antibiotic therapy to promote patient safety and reduce antibiotic resistance.

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

This activity is intended for pharmacists.

  • Discuss the recent evidence on short course antimicrobial therapy.
  • Identify the pros and cons of earlier switch to oral therapy.
