Improving the use of antibiotics to protect residents and reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance is a top priority in long-term and post-acute care. AADNS has partnered with the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) to offer an online virtual workshop to help facilities comply with F881 infection control regulations related to antibiotic stewardship in the CMS Long-Term Care Final Rule. Using the CDC’s Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship for Nursing Homes as a guide, this workshop provides practical guidance on how to initiate, grow, and sustain an antibiotic stewardship program that will become an integral part of your facility’s Infection Control and Prevention Program. This course includes sample antibiotic protocols and helpful worksheets.
Following this course, you will:
- Be able to develop a plan of action to help your facility comply with this new regulation
- Understand how to improve the use of antibiotics to protect residents and reduce the threat of antibiotic resistance
- Know how to create a commitment statement, policies and procedures, assessment forms, and clinical staff education resources
This course qualifies for six hours of nursing and pharmacy CE.
