Principles of Antibiotic Stewardship

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Multidrug resistant organisms (MDROs) are a serious problem in healthcare, and their rise has been linked to inappropriate prescribing and use of antibiotics. Antibiotic stewardship programs have developed as a response to MDROs and to guide best antibiotic practice. Antibiotic stewardship is a movement which aims to treat this powerful group of medications resourcefully, implementing antibiotic use with evidence-based practice. As part of the antibiotic stewardship movement, providers and other team members such as nurses are called upon to be stewards of antibiotics so that these medications can continue to be used to fight infections in the future. In this module, you will learn about antibiotic stewardship and apply your knowledge in several case studies. You will learn about the Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and how you can apply components of the program to your nursing practice.
