About the Summit:

With workload increases and staffing limitations due to COVID-19, the focus has been shifted away from antimicrobial stewardship in many facilities across diverse healthcare settings. Unfortunately, inappropriate antibiotic prescribing is common and can result in sub-optimal patient outcomes, development of antimicrobial resistance, and serious adverse reactions such as Clostridioides difficile infection. This summit is designed to highlight the importance of antimicrobial stewardship and focus on implementation strategies to promote facility-wide incorporation and improved antimicrobial use and patient outcomes.

Summit Date: Friday, August 12th

Location: Embassy Suites by Hilton Omaha—Downtown Old Market

Registration deadline: August 4th
