PAC-5 - Antibiotic Stewardship: A Year in Review

Tuesday, October 9
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
CE: NAB: 0 | Nurses 0

Effective November 28, 2017, all nursing homes were required to implement an antibiotic stewardship program with guidance from CMS to follow the CDC’s seven Core Elements of an effective antibiotic stewardship program: Leadership Commitment, Accountability, Drug Expertise, Action, Tracking, Reporting, and Education.
This framework, once completed, will get a facility 90% of the way to compliance, but the heavy lifting is the execution in the facility, commitment to change, and a fundamental cultural shift within the facility and the community as a whole.
In this session, you will hear success stories and lessons learned as we take you on our journey of implementing an antibiotic stewardship program in two different nursing home organizations. We will provide case examples, actionable metrics, and collaborative best practices among physicians, administrators, pharmacy, and nursing staff, designed to enhance the success of antibiotic stewardship.

At the completion of the presentation, the audience will understand the real-world application of antibiotic stewardship and how to overcome challenges in the nursing home setting, as well as how to leverage pharmacy and other metrics to better track and monitor program success.
