AMDA's 2019 Annual Conference


FR28 - Research Updates on Antimicrobial Stewardship in PALTC


Mar 8, 2019 3:30pm ‐ Mar 8, 2019 5:00pm


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

This session will present updates and outcomes from research about antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial stewardship in PALTC settings. Findings from these projects, which will include works in progress, may help attendees understand the implications for measuring antimicrobial resistance in their facility as well as considerations for protocols related to evaluation of individuals in whom there is a concern for infection, including urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize the potential for differences in antibiograms for PALTC settings compared to affiliated acute care settings and potential options for improving the accuracy for antibiograms for PALTC settings.
  • Consider the potential for using a clinical decision support to standardize communication about change in status and the subsequent influence on resident care and outcomes. 
  • Discuss the influence of using standardized protocols to improve the evaluation and treatment of residents with suspected UTIs.
  • Describe the potential for research in the PALTC setting to lead to widespread improvements in the care of older adults and to help reduce the prevalence of multi-drug resistant pathogens.

Credits Available: 1.50 CMD Clinical | 1.50 CME | 1.50 MOC

Please Note: Self assessments will be coming soon.
