Targeted for Pharmacists, Physicians, Nurses, or Healthcare Teams
The Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists’ Focused Antimicrobial Stewardship Training (FAST) program is a thorough, one-day course that offers the learner practical and relevant information regarding the implementation, maintenance, and progression of an antimicrobial stewardship program. Course faculty are nationally renowned infectious diseases experts who can speak to the regulatory, practical, and clinical aspects of a stewardship program. By participating in a combination of didactic learning and small group workshop activities, the learner will be engaged throughout the course.
Choose the agenda that best suits your needs. Each FAST conference typically offers 7–8 hours of CE/CME content comprised of core and elective sessions but can be customized to meet your needs.
