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.

"Solid presentation, but very unfortunate that the critical role of nursing in any viable stewardship team is not better articulated.  According to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, ~ 75% of all Infection Preventionists are RNs or have a nursing background.  It's the nurse who does initial history intake, including verification of allergies.  The nurse will be the first person getting the culture report and is in the best position to  highlight whether a change in antibiotics is warranted.  The nurse will deliver IV antibiotics, as well as be able to alert the team when IV to PO transition should be considered.  Having nurse leadership and nurse involvement in antibiotic stewardship program development and implementation is a must, not an after thought."

"Thank you for this information it is thought provoking.  Can you voice your feelings concerning stopping an antibiotic which has been prescribed by other than their PCP.

Many antibiotics are ordered by for non bacterial illnesses.  Parents are reluctant to discontinue the medication even though it is not needed."
