JoAnn Adkins, BSN, RN, senior infection preventionist, Patient Safety Authority
Antibiotic resistance is an increasing problem in healthcare, especially in nursing homes where up to 75% of antibiotics are prescribed inappropriately. Contributing to this is pressure from residents and families, antiquated prescribing practices, and a “What could it hurt?” mentality.
Whether you need to rebuild your antibiotic stewardship program from scratch or just want to make sure all the basics are covered, sign up for our Antibiotic Stewardship Webinar Series! Participants will receive an overview of antibiotic stewardship, assistance in evaluating current policies/processes, and tools to develop an effective program.
.50 continuing education hours will be awarded for the completion of each individual module listed above. Continuing education credits apply to Pennsylvania registered nurses.
