Module objectives

 

Antimicrobial stewardship refers to interventions designed to promote the optimal use of antibiotic agents, including drug choice, dosing, route, and duration of administration. To address antimicrobial resistance, all clinicians must become stewards of antimicrobials by prescribing them appropriately and educating their patients and colleagues on the proper use of this increasingly scarce medical resource. This technical workshop will equip clinicians who frequently prescribe and/or advice the use of antimicrobials with knowledge and tools to enhance their capacity in daily clinical practice as well as to empower the future leaders in antimicrobial stewardship. Through case based examples and hands-on exercises, the technical workshop will highlight how antimicrobial stewardship principles can be applied to common clinical scenarios and will explore approaches to overcome issues identified in different clinical and practice settings.
