Promoting Antimicrobial Stewardship

Nearly 50% of antimicrobial use in US hospitals is unnecessary or inappropriate. This statistic has dire consequences for our healthcare system, including increased patient mortality, length of hospital stay, cost, drug toxicity, and C. difficile infections. Dr. Deverick Anderson presents this three-part course on the need for antimicrobial stewardship, how to build an effective team to address the issue, and practical strategies for success. He mounts key evidence for why you and your colleagues should join the fight against antimicrobial misuse and offers the latest recommendations for how to make a difference in your own practice.

"Do you think an emphasis on multidisciplinary rounds would improve antibiotic stewardship?"

"Thank you Dr. Anderson for a great presentation. I've been working with the ID group at our hospital on a stewardship program for the last 7 years. This year we began using procalcitonin levels to help stop therapy a day or two sooner in pneumonia patients. Procalcitonin has also helped to separate pneumonia from CHF.  I was wondering if you have had any experience in using procalcitonin levels in sepsis?  Currently, with the big push to treat sepsis, it seems we have half the house on vancomycin. I'm trying to get micro to move to pcr MRSA testing so we can get these folks off vancomycin before they have to get that second dose.  Is your micro department using rapid MRSA testing on blood and has it been successful in reducing vancomycin usage?

Thanks again for bringing antimicrobial stewardship to this forum."
