IDAC Antibiotic Stewardship - Addressing Issues Beyond the Basics

Friday November 3rd, 2023

The Infectious Disease Association of California, (IDAC), is pleased to present: Antimicrobial Stewardship - Beyond the Basics on Friday, November 3rd, 2023. This CME activity is designed to assist health care facilities, pharmacists, physicians, and infection prevention practitioners to develop and grow their Antimicrobial Stewardship Program. Successful completion of this course will demonstrate knowledge of antibiotic stewardship for the attendee as required. 

California legislation (SB 1311) mandates “general acute care hospitals to adopt and implement, by July 1, 2015, an antimicrobial stewardship policy…that includes a process to evaluate the judicious use of antibiotics.” The bill also requires general acute care hospitals to develop a multidisciplinary antimicrobial stewardship committee, headed by a physician or pharmacist who is knowledgeable about antimicrobial stewardship through prior training or attendance at continuing education programs.” Further California Legislation (SB 361) further mandates similar requirements for Skilled Nursing Facilities on or before January 1, 2017.
