Antimicrobial Stewardship: Improving Transplant Outcomes and the Patient Experience

Thursday, June 04, 2020, at 3:00pm

Antimicrobial stewardship is a quality improvement initiative that promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobials to reduce emergence of microbial resistance and to mitigate the risk of adverse events experienced by the patient due to antimicrobials. This webinar will provide a current overview of key concepts in antimicrobial stewardship as it applies to solid organ transplant programs. The presentation will focus on the need for antimicrobial stewardship in solid organ transplant programs as a means of improving the quality of care and the patient experience. Join us to hear from two leading experts as they discuss the infrastructure of transplant-centered antimicrobial stewardship programs and the best practices associated with implementing antimicrobial stewardship in solid organ transplant programs.
