What is Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMSP)?
Antimicrobial stewardship is the coordinated effort of all members of the health care team to optimize antimicrobial therapy and minimize resistance. It includes interventions such as providing clinicians with timely information on susceptibility patterns, promoting the judicious use of antibiotics, and enforcing guidelines for infection control.
This course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the principles of antimicrobial stewardship, including the epidemiology and pathogenesis of antibiotic-resistant infections, and the role of antibiotics in society. Participants will also learn about the evaluation and management of patients with antibiotic-resistant infections, as well as strategies for promoting appropriate antibiotic use.
