Antimicrobial Stewardship, Resistance and Emerging Pathogens
30/30 Education Session - 30 minutes
This session focuses on a critical-access hospital’s journey as it worked to create an Antibiotic Stewardship Program with limited funds, to increase our patient care safety and improve patient satisfaction surveys. Though this facility recognized the importance of ASP they did not have the capacity or resources to implement the desired program.
This session will cover how the hospital devised solutions to fund the proposed plan, the low-cost resources used to design and maintain the plan, and a review of their approach for team goal-setting.
