Antimicrobial Stewardship Certificate Programs

About

The Society of Infectious Diseases Pharmacists currently offers three programs that provide education on the pharmacist’s role in the appropriate use of antimicrobial agents. All ACPE accredited programs consist of three phases and can be completed within one’s home/practice environment.  Phase 1 consists of self-study modules. Phase 2 allows participants to engage in live webinars with content authors with a question and answer session after the webinar. Phase 3 involves participants completing a practice-based project demonstrating individual mastery of concepts by applying what was learned in the self-study and webinars to implement, evaluate, or modify some aspect of antimicrobial stewardship at their facility. Finally, the research series provides education on how pharmacists can develop, conduct, and publicize their antimicrobial stewardship research endeavors.

SIDP Antimicrobial Stewardship Certificate Program for Acute Care

This certificate program is designed to educate pharmacists practicing in the acute care setting. It provides a self-study and/or webinar-based review of microbiology, pharmacology/pharmacokinetics, diagnostic technologies, disease state management, interventions/implementation, outcomes, and compliance with current regulations. This content is meant to supply the participant with fundamental knowledge needed to implement, manage, and improve antimicrobial stewardship programs.

SIDP Long-Term Care (LTC) Antimicrobial Stewardship Certificate Program

This certificate program is designed to educate pharmacists practicing in the long-term care setting.

SIDP Low- and Middle-Income Country (LMIC) Antimicrobial Stewardship Certificate Program

This certificate program is designed to educate pharmacists practicing in the acute care setting in under-resourced low- and middle-income countries. It provides a self-study and/or webinar-based review of microbiology, pharmacology/pharmacokinetics, diagnostic technologies, disease state management, interventions/implementation, and outcomes. This content is meant to supply the participant with fundamental knowledge needed to implement, manage, and improve antimicrobial stewardship programs. Some material may not be specifically applicable to the participant’s home country, however, the overarching concepts presented in modules will be useful as a framework for understanding and applying principles of stewardship. To see which countries of residence qualify for enrollment in this program, please refer to the World Health Organization list.

This program is designed to equip pharmacists with knowledge and skills needed to conduct antimicrobial stewardship research. It provides a 4-part self-study review of idea generation, protocol development, data collection set-up and management, data analysis, and research dissemination. This content is meant to supply the participant with fundamental knowledge needed to measure outcomes related to antimicrobial stewardship programs. Participants can receive continuing education and BCIDP credit with this program.
