FREE webinar with CE at 1 pm EST, hosted by CDC in collaboration with Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA’s) Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, the Society of Infectious Disease Pharmacists, and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Leading experts will discuss pharmacists’ roles in improving antibiotic prescribing and use in hospital settings.

Webinar Description:

This educational activity is designed to review updated information on common antibiotic use problems encountered by general clinical pharmacists. Discussion of case-based scenarios will be used to demonstrate how to identify and prioritize antibiotic-related problems and explain examples of employing effective stewardship strategies in the acute care setting. The presenters will use a variety of active techniques to communicate information and facilitate discussion of the clinical scenarios.


1. Describe factors that influence appropriate antimicrobial use.

2. Explain strategies that can be used by pharmacists in the acute patient care setting to support antimicrobial stewardship and reduce the development and spread of resistance. 

3. Given a clinical scenario, recommend antimicrobial interventions that improve patient outcomes and/or safety.
