Needs Statement

Antibiotic use is a key driver of antibiotic resistance, and improvements in antibiotic use to align with guideline recommendations are needed across the spectrum of health care. Understanding where opportunities exist to improve antibiotic use is key to identifying targets of antibiotic stewardship.

Antibiotic stewardship programs are often evaluated on overall antibiotic use, but the true goal of antibiotic stewardship is to improve patient outcomes.

Target Audience

All healthcare practitioners responsible for prescribing antibiotics as well as non-prescribing registered nurses and pharmacists

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the Current State of Antimicrobial use in Kentucky and the U.S.
2. Identify opportunities in improving antibiotic use to improve outcomes.
3. Describe the impact of antibiotic stewardship use, patient outcomes, antibiotic resistance and health care costs
4. Review case studies in evaluation of successful antibiotic stewardship activities in healthcare facilities.
