Description

This session will provide guidance on starting and sustaining an antibiotic stewardship program (ASP) in their facilities. This will be achieved by introducing the core elements that are essential to a successful ASP. The presenters will provide practical tips on implementing all the core elements using easily available free resources. The audience will also have the opportunity to interact with experts, including those who are currently helping various LTC facilities in developing their own ASP. The ultimate goal of this session is to prepare medical directors, other clinical practitioners, and nursing home administrators for implementing a sustainable ASP at their facilities, based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended core elements.
