Antibiotic Stewardship

Concurrent Education Session - 60 minutes

3000 - Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Antibiotic Stewardship in 60 Minutes

Friday, June 16
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: Oregon Convention Center, A 105-106

There is no doubt that hospitals must embrace antimicrobial stewardship, but what does it exactly entail? Antibiotic stewards ensure that antibiotics are appropriately prescribed in the right formulation, for the particular indication, and at the correct duration. When antibiotics are given inappropriately, this can lead to drug resistance and unintended adverse consequences, such as Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). Prerequisites to a successful antimicrobial stewardship program include an initial understanding of basic information about antibiotics. In this session, you will learn about generic and brand names of commonly prescribed antibiotics in the inpatient setting and will review mechanisms of antibiotic resistance. You will learn how antibiotics are not benign — some can lower the seizure threshold, some can cause arrhythmias, and some can cause acute kidney injury. The selection of antibiotics depends on multiple factors and can fall into categories such as empiric or prophylactic. Targeted therapy is important and dependent on the nature of the patient’s particular infection, body habitus, allergies, and clinical course. You will understand some basic information about cultures, including the minimum inhibitory concentration, as well as interpretation of culture results — including the meaning of indeterminate, sensitive, and resistant. There are times that patients can have infections but cultures are negative, and therapy may be directed toward the potential pathogens that would have caused the infections in the first place. We all need to be cognizant about antimicrobial stewardship and in this course, we will pack the basics as a prerequisite before beginning your hospital program.

Jessica Silvaggio

Infection Preventionist
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
Los Angeles, California

Jessica Silvaggio is an infection preventionist at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She previously worked as an applied epidemiology fellow with the CDC and CSTE, focusing on infectious diseases and healthcare-associated infections in Los Angeles County. During her two-year CDC/CSTE fellowship, she was deployed to work at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia to support the Ebola response, participated in multistate outbreaks, helped create the 2013 Los Angeles County antibiogram (providing a snapshot of resistance to antibiotics countywide), co-led epidemiologic responses in hospital outbreaks, performed cost benefit analysis studies, and conducted research to explore the implications of the health officer order mandating influenza vaccination among healthcare workers. Jessica is interested in multidrug-resistant organisms in healthcare settings, emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial stewardship, and emergency preparedness. She serves as an active board member as the chapter legislative representative for California APIC and as communications chair for the APIC Greater Los Angeles chapter.
