The Colorado’s Antimicrobial Stewardship Roadmap seminar is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 22 at the University of Colorado Hospital’s Bruce Shroffel Conference Center.
According to the CDC, antibiotics have transformed the practice of medicine. The prompt initiation of antibiotics to treat infections has been proven to reduce morbidity and save lives; however, 20-50 percent of all antibiotics prescribed in U.S. acute care hospitals are either unnecessary or inappropriate. Join us for a day with experts who will share knowledge about antimicrobial stewardship best practices and implementation strategies.
- Discuss current national strategies for antimicrobial stewardship
- Present the new Joint Commission standards for antimicrobial stewardship
- Discuss future antimicrobial stewardship opportunities and antimicrobial resistance in Colorado
- Describe the role of nursing in antimicrobial stewardship
- Discuss lessons learned by hospitals participating in the statewide antimicrobial stewardship collaborative
- Explore how to bring providers to the table
This program is geared towards health care professionals in hospitals, long term care facilities and outpatient settings who are engaged in antimicrobial stewardship, including physicians, pharmacists, infection preventionists, nurses and licensed independent professionals.
