Antibiotic Stewardship: A Regulatory Perspective

Antibiotic use in long-term care has come under intense scrutiny due to in part to studies which suggested they are overused and poorly managed. Misuse of antibiotics can have profound clinical implications for the residents who receive them and adversely affect the "regulatory health" of the facilities who administer them. This presentation, given by the former Chief Nurse of Maryland’s state survey agency, will provide an overview of current federal regulations which impact antibiotic use. Best clinical practices designed to reduce the risks associated with antibiotics will also be explored. Finally, antibiotic stewardship will be discussed from both a clinical and operational perspective.

This program is intended for administrators, CEOs/owners, regional directors/managers, directors of nursing, corporate staff and department heads.

Continuing Education:
Application will be made with the Michigan Board of Nursing Home Administrators for (2) two hours of continuing education credit. All disciplines will receive a certificate of attendance at the conclusion of this program.
