Antibiotic Prescribing Dilemmas in the Face of Increasing Resistance: How Do Diagnostics Help?

P.A.C.E. Credit*

There are a diminishing number of antibiotics in use today and very few drugs on the horizon. This, combined with the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on infection control practices, has caused an increased need for antibiotic stewardship. The next pandemic could be even worse with secondary bacterial infections. Are we prepared?

In this webinar, Jean Patel, PhD, hosts Eric Myers, PharmD, Adventist Health, and Navaneeth Narayanan, PharmD, Rutgers University, to discuss the recent antibiotic prescribing dilemmas, their current practices for Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, and the most effective antibiotic stewardship practices at their institutions.

P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation*

Key Learnings:

  • Knowledge of the antibiotic pipeline
  • Understanding challenging prescribing situations
  • Understanding how diagnostics can impact prescribing practices today
